A real page-turner

Piccirilli gives us an exciting, gripping, dark but often humorous novel that makes extremely good use of the "amateur sleuth" team of Jon Kendrick and his grandmother Anna. A unique, believable, and wonderfully well-done mystery!

A powerful novel of mystery and history

As always, Tom Piccirilli capably brings his characters to life thorugh the use of the secrets in their pasts, their complex emotional make-ups, and moral integrity. This story speeds along giving us an intensely personal view of the protagonists and some amazing action scenes. Definitely pick it up.

couldn't put it down

TDP is a mystery that I couldn't put down, it has rich, vibrant characters and funny dialogue and nuances that most novels can't touch. TDP opens with a 4 am phone call to Jon Kendrick from his grandmother. She tells him she found a body in her trash can. Jon then goes home to Felicity Grove to help solve the crime. See, Jon and his grandmother are a tag team of amateur sleuths who have solved a few of the crimes that have occurred in the small town of Felicity Grove. Suffice to say, I read this one in one 3 hour sitting. The characters are so flamboyant and unique that I enjoyed finding out what happened next. The dialogue pops and snaps so crisply, I found myself yelling and/or laughing out loud. And the plot is so full of surprises and twists that I didn't figure out what was really going on until the very end...and then I couldn't believe it. Highly Recommended.

A wonderful mystery full of wit and suspense

A terrific novel that runs the gamut from nerve-wracking suspense to laugh out loud humorous scenes. Mr. Piccirilli is highly effective when it comes to creating believable characters that you'll cheer for and grow to love.
