3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting mysteries but no integration Feb. 18 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This mystery novel presents three interesting arson investigations in the context of a single story, but the 3 don't hang together. The book comes off as a poorly integrated set of what could have been 3 great short stories. The writing is OK, not great, but the primary mystery is a whopper. Imagine a locked room arson in which 5 paintings are destroyed -- but their frames left charred but intact.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique and intellectual and eclectic. Aug. 13 2012
By Norman M. Canter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The author displays great imagination in structuring the motivation and methods of the arson crimes. In doing so she develops interesting characters with interesting motivations. Her interest in Pre-Raphaelites is great and her knowledge of the subject displays study and artistic and literary study. She is eclectic in her interest of the literature generally, has a great sense of humor and has great descriptive ability...for clothes, places and activities of her fellow man. This book was thoroughly enjoyable and off the beaten track.
