I love that in addition to being such a suspenseful and exciting mystery, there is the beautiful relationship between the main character and a little girl. Great review!

Thank you for the excellent review! This sounds like a very intense read with his girlfriend being murdered and then a diagnosis of cancer! It is a lot for a character to handle, but finding one's way through the struggles of life are what a good book is made of!
All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts

This is true! It also made his character more relatable. Thanks for stopping by and reading my review!

Sounds like the clues that twist and turn you around to confuse the reader into believing the murder is someone else. Intriguing.

The plotline sounds very intriguing. I don't think I ever heard of Beatles loving serial killer. Still, I think I will pass but this seems like a good book to know to recommend mystery lovers.

Awful, what a tough way to lose a loved one. I can feel it within me.
So bad.

Wow! I love crime novels and I think this will be one that I read. Sean's life is thrown into chaos at the horrendous loss of his girlfriend and his cancer diagnosis. Then along comes little Kaleigh who befriends Sean and together they find a little sunshine in an otherwise dark world. I agree with the reviewer that this would not be a good read for children just because of the rape at the beginning and the vulgarity that is in the book. Great review and congrats to the author on being BOTD!!

Dear P,
Thanks for the review. It gave me a real taste for the flavor of the book. And I think some of the best stories are when the characters take us on a journey and they are very different people when they are finished than when they started. And hopefully, so are we too.
You did a good review. Thanks for your help.

Sincerely, Laura-Lee
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. John 21:25 KJV

Great review! I think I'm definitely going to have to check this one out! As a new reviewer I notice things I might be overlooking in my own review criteria when I read fellow reviewers work.
