The chapter about the conflict in Easton at the reservoir is so detailed and well written that you find yourself gasping for breath.
Professor McCarthy is a great character and I'm looking forward to reading about him and Ms. Smith in the follow-on series. He makes a Northeastern alumni like me proud!
I used to live in the area and loved the scenes around Boston, Worcester and Cambridge, which were very detailed and accurate. (I even know where McCarthy lives!)
It's an excellent read and well worth the purchase price.
If you are looking for a mystery book that will keep you guessing until the very end I would strongly recommend you pick up this book. Trust me you will thank me when you're done.
The relationship between the protagonist and the girl had a lot of potential and could have been a bit more developed. In fact, only a couple of character were well developed. The story had an unsatisfactory ending for me - flat and hurried. It was almost as if the author tacked on the ending just to tie up lose ends rather than resolve the conflict.
Overall this was a very interesting story but I think it could be tightened up to give it a bit more punch and better developed characters.
I love the characters, the story could be a great basis for a more detailed and dramatic suspense thriller, there were hardly any distracting typos or grammar mistakes (that I could tell), and I hope there are more books starring the Professor and Jenny--they work well together.

Not a bad book but too contrived without much depth of character. The plot had potential but was not developed well. Very abrupt and unsatisfying ending.Published on July 25, 2014 by Mhval

well though out and executed story. As with most e-novels, the typos are annoying and should be cleaned up before publishing.Published on May 5, 2014 by Rich Lenz
