Well - looks to be a good mystery here - tho' I've had to read and reread the two reads trying to remember and figure out who is the son and who is the bad guy - Maybe my brain is just not awake yet - but it's certainly late enough - tried much earlier this morn and decided to get back to it later - which I just did - think I've got it now - as of now would recommend it - and know you would only have to read once - and if you are not in the good news club - you can request the previous reads -
Have had the same thought, Pam - Edwin did it - so the mystery is over - do we need to read more? Is there enough interest in the artist to continue with this - don't think I'll be getting this one from the library -
I didn't get to read these installments until today, so I read 4 in a row. I too think Edwin knows more than what he is saying. His story is the only one that anyone knows, and it seems that if Bland were an accountant, he would not have been stupid enough to have money sent to his personal checking acount. He would be the perfect fall guy too because of his home problems. Why no yelling in the room? Maybe they confronted Bland and he wasn't worried or was in shock they were accusing him because he was innocent, Edwin knew the truth would come out and freaked. Or maybe Bland was doing it with Edwin and was going to snitch, eh? I admit it, I'll probably read it to find out!
I just want to know if Edwin did it! Glad you are enjoying the book. Your lunch time book - do you, like me, have various books on the go in different parts of the house? I have my beside the bed books, my beside the couch books, my in the bathroom pile and the one I take if I am going somewhere & I have to wait!
I will admit that this book has grabbed my attention. It's not one that I "can't wait to get my hands on", but does seem interesting. I agree with some of you that Edwin is an interesting character and probably is more involved than it seems.
I have requested it from my library and will read it, but I don't expect that it will be an "on the edge of my seat" kind of mystery.
