The story started with a mystery and then the detective sisters go into action as all Merabeth James novels do . Then the story line thinned out and repeated earlier scenarios over and over. I was disappointed as the story line could have expanded into an epic.
The story was good but I expected more to happen with every chapter the characters seemed to slip back to the begining of the tale. I expected a good ending with a bit of comeuppance for the bad guys. Which did not happen.
