Great read. Eye opening. Exciting. Thought-provoking.
Not one for anyone under the age of 18. (*)
Wonderfully unique way of telling an excellent story
A epilogue would have been useful (*)
Good plot, plenty twists and turns.
The main character a little irritating and unbelievable at times. (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (D)
Readable, competent
Not particularly memorable (*)
Intelligent, well thought out historical mystery
Not for those who aren't into their history; the characters develop better in future books (*)
The setting
Weak plot, simplistic characters (*)
Great story, deals with the issues of racism in a small English town.
Is just that bit too drawn out. (*)
Overall a good read
Easy to put down and way too much detail (*)

Poor characterisation (*)
Continuation of what's been a decent series
