4.0 out of 5 stars Dead Man's Hand
By Cindy on April 3, 2022
Just finished this book. I really enjoyed it. I have not picked up a book in a few years, but glad I chose this one. It's a really easy read. Finished in a little over a week, was doing about 5 chapters a day. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a new book.
