This was a great story. It is a quick read.full of action. At times Miriam being jealous of a dead woman tended to get a bit repetitive but did not hurt the story, seemed like it was a bit of filler, which was really not needed in the story. Also I would of liked a better ending, where we go to trial and whether or not the sister was found.
