Trying a dragon/fantasy to see if I would like it, but just couldn't get into it. Gave it 110 pages, but not my cup of tea. Sorry Mrs. Hambly.

I wasn't sure what I thought of the idea of the 1st lady as a detective, but I love the Adams family so I gave it a try.
The only irritating part was the attribution of modern ideas about crime to people living in the 1700's.
Understanding the psychology of the serial killer and the importance of chain of evidence, felt it a bit far fetched.

Killer was certainly no surprise, but that was because author played fair
