This book is certainly a thriller that leaves you nervously checking your doors and windows….not for the faint hearted. I truly couldn’t put it down – a real page turner and a great read. I’ll never look at crows in the same way again.
Ronald Kenyon has written a very good first novel. He has the ability to grip you with his storytelling, and I will put him down on my list for the next book, if I dare…
