First in the series, and one can only hope that the remaining installments will get better. Whether writing as Noreen Wald or Nora Charles, the author simply doesn't stay consistent. At times the book was interesting and had a lot of potential but it never panned out the way it should of. Then there were the annoying typos and missing passages. Those just made things even worse. Not a highly captivating read or one that would be considered memorable.
