animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

proving ground

Way back when, I read another book by this same author, Peter Blauner, and I couldn’t put it down. If I recall correctly, I stayed up half the night reading it. Unfortunately, the same was not true for this novel. While good, it didn’t pull me in like that. I took it on vacation and expected to read the whole thing while there, but it ended up taking me a month to read. The plot is too complicated to explain, but it was a crime novel, so if you’re into that, you might like this book.

This was a first book in a new series from this author. I don’t think I will continue with the series, but I do plan on checking out some of his previous work.

My rating: 3/5
