Review: THE THREE DEATHS OF MAGDALENE LAYTON by Katherine Hatton
A superbly engrossing and absorbing mystery operating on multiple levels, THE THREE DEATHS OF MAGDALENE LAYTON is a marvel penned by an accomplished author. I don't even know where to begin to summarize. Suffice it to say, the reader's heartstrings will be repeatedly wrenched, and there will be in turns surprise, shock, and grief. Many characters suffer, and yes, some few are constructed of the stuff of monsters. Author Hayton, a New Zealand native, frequently references factual local crimes [which I looked up], adding to the fictional story both local color and human interest. Rest assured, this is an unforgettable novel.
