Yes, yes, I know. Isn't this the Hillary Greene author? Didn't I put a sentence about Faith Martin at the beginning so I wouldn't have to bore you with my recommendation of the 17 Hillary Greene books? Yes, yes, and yes. But listen—this book is better than the Hillary Greene series. It's traditional in every sense—it's even set in 1960—but the characters are well-drawn and compelling, the writing is sharp, and it's truly unputdownable. I hope the next two are as good as this one.
