Amazing stories5 star

Three stories that are entirely different from each other, from different times. The talented author has done an amazing job of approaching mysteries solved with the techniques that were available, mostly observation and inquisition. The fully developed characters and stories , with a twist, are superb.55

Ok read3 star

I thought it was an ok read since there was three stories in one it was. Long book I liked the fact that it was set in the 1800’s that intrigued me.35
