Fantastic ! Sherlock Holmes (or, Shamrock Wolmbs) step aside ! A well-written, spell-binding murder mystery, which puts the reader directly in the streets and in some of the famous Beatles-related venues of Liverpool in the year 1960. The author’s words vividly place you in the midst of the criminal investigation, and the scenes and colorful characters come to life as clearly as if you are watching them on TV or in a film. Keeps you guessing (and second and third-guessing) throughout, as a good mystery should, and doesn’t fail you at the end, when the truths, and clever twists unfold. For Beatles fans and non-Beatles fans alike. Buy this book ! ... and I can hardly wait for the next in the series.
