    1. Book 2, in the Peter Cammon MysteriesThis second edition although part of a series can well be read on its own have no fear if you pick this one up first you will fall right into a dazzling game of cat and mouse that carries Peter from Canada to England to Washington and be swept away in one of those elaborate plot and a true spy adventure.The twisting and complex drama effectively captures some aspect of police work and opens with Peter once again lured out of retirement to handle an assignment [...]


    2. Some parts are a bit clunky: the India connections, the action scenes, and the parts set in the US. But the mixture of spy story, murder mystery, and primer on Civil War-era Canadian history pull it through.


    3. Complex and very grown up mystery. I can't decide if part of the complexity was the writing itself. I made it through and liked it very much--so that's what counts. He did one thing I found particularly endearing. After the bad stuff had ended, he took an extraordinary amount of time on the wrap up. Normally I'd settle for what we usually get--a quick "this little piggy went to jail for 20 years and these little piggies got married." He put a great deal of thought and effort into the ending of t [...]


    4. Read my full review: bit/1e1uF7EMy opinion: I liked the unique storyline, but the story had a feeling of being discombobulated, at times, while dry at others. As a result, it took me FOREVER to get through it. I had to take this book out of my library 3 times to get through it after I lost total interest in the publisher's ARC. Had I not committed to review it for the pubisher, I probably would have shelved it.In preparing for this review, I noticed the same criticisms in the first book in the s [...]


    5. another excellent murder mystery--dark, thoughtful, intelligent, gripping--David Whellams is an author to watch


    6. Thoroughly enjoyed this book soon after it was published.Will happily read the next Peter Cammon mystery.


    7. Interesting plot but it moved too slow much of the time. I'd give this author another try since I liked the characters.


    8. I like this author and this character but I find I stumble now and again in reading his writing style especially at the beginning of his books. I will continue with this series



    9. Did not like this as well as the first one - seemed a little disjointed - but a key part of the story line - the letters - didnt really interest me, so i will give him another try. And I didn't get the last bit at all.
