Liked the story It was well written felt longer than 64 pages Anne Perry has proven again that she knows how to bind a reader to a story world and how to leave the reader crawing for , no matter which genre she writes about.Victorian crime isn t required when modern day times themselves have enough mystery food hidden in the shadows of history Liked the story It was well written felt longer than 64 pages Anne Perry has proven again that she knows how to bind a reader to a story world and how to leave the reader crawing for , no matter which genre she writes about.Victorian crime isn t required when modern day times themselves have enough mystery food hidden in the shadows of history Short story about a book seller employee who finds a valuable scroll at the bottom of a box of books bought at auction Even though the scroll has not been advertised for sale three people request to buy it The story moves well, the ending was kind of lame. Really bad short story Don t bother. similar to The Da Vinci Code but mercifully shorter very atmospheric and tense. I love these little mysteries introducing me to writers I wouldn t otherwise invest in have the patience for.Super entertaining bedtime story.
