Chilling Mystery

by lifeinbooks on Jul 21, 2011

This chilling mystery is easy to read. The fast paced drama makes it a page turner that is hard to put down until one comes to the end of the book. Even then, it stays in ones mind pondering all the twists and turns . All mystery thriller fans should definitly put this one one their lists.

Captivating Reading

by Elaine on May 11, 2010

The Thirteenth Tale is very well written and combines the past and the present in a captivating manner. The author leads the reader down a pathway of intriguing events. The reader finds himself heading a certain direction, and then suprisingly another. The author paints the scenes and the characters with their deep emotions, in a superb and mysterious way, bringing the story to life. I was spellbound by this book and will be looking forward to more works from this author.
