I love this mystery author and I find her books extemely hard or expensive to get hold of. So when I opened a Birthday present and found this inside I knew what I would be reading on the train home from Prague. Although these stories are never the kind to have you on the edge of your seat they are realistic stories with depth and reason. I hope I will be reading more by this author soon.
