LOVE Devlin Caine! He's a wonderful character! This is William Topek's second book and each one just gets better and better. The historical facts in this book are very accurate and fun to read. The book takes you to an age when detectives did almost anything to solve a case. You'll enjoy the intricate twists and turns in this book. Just when you're sure things have settled, something else happens to blow up all your theories. I recommend this book highly.
I didn't find issues with this one.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because I love an old fashioned detective novel.
