Cain and Able was a favorite, but then Prodigal Daughter was such a disappointment that
I have not read his books in a long, long time. I finally decided to give him another chance. This book was very enjoyable. It did drag in the middle a bit, but overall a
very enjoyable story. Try it.
A very good book. A bit tough to read at the beginning due to the irish/scottich accents that get spelled phonetically, but that goes away in the first 100 pages or so. A good story that had me not wanting to put the book down. It was my first Archer book, but won't be the last.
