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.

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.
