realist people, location.Story develops slowly and keeps you guessing til the end. I am a fan of Minette Walters books and was just a little disappointed that this one is rather short - but to the point.

Minette Walters is one of my favorite authors, I have enjoyed to a greater or lesser degree every one of her other books. But this is more short story than novel, so while it is fast paced, even perhaps a little memorable, it isn't worth the cost. It is a British-published book, which no doubt accounts for it's high price, but I wish I'd spent my hard earned money on a book that entertained me for a longer time.

When compared to her CHICKENFEED, this is nothing. Though this one is way too short, there are lots of characters when compared to its length. And the story keeps jumping. At the end the mystery is revealed and I was not amused. An okay read.
A short story with lots of twists and turns, the Tinder Box is a change from Walters usually full length novels. Interesting, and fun to read, it kept me guessing. I prefer the long novels, but this was a fun read.
