by Annie Ward
Mark Twain (among others) is credited with saying, “If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter.” Annie Ward should have taken more time and written a shorter book. It is well written and suspenseful, but there is way too much background noise. I did not find any of the main characters to be likeable. I probably would have cared more about what happened to them if I had liked them. In spite of this, I found the suspense enjoyable, even though the ending was not as surprising as it could/should have been.
