    1. I liked SLSD well enough A good deal of tension is developed over the book, beginning with a mysterious death, followed by the appearance of a mysterious stranger who claims not to be a stranger at all These mysteries are fully resolved, but as in most of the Burke I ve read, it requires a leap of faith.

    2. 2 starsBrigid and Martin are planning their wedding This part of the book really didn t interest me In fact, it was boring While the writing style was okay, it was nothing to write home about I guess this book just wasn t for me Thanks to Netgalley and Endeavour Press for forwarding a copy of this book to me.

    3. First published in 1968 What is the connection between a disappearance in 1913, a body discovered fifty years later, and a murdered man.This book was okay, not really that interesting, the story or the characters or the writing style It got the two stars because I finished it.A NetGalley Book

    4. First published in 1968 There were some interesting portions, but it felt dated Not because of the actual date, about the style I almost put it down because the first chapter was so annoying, but it did get better.
