2. What were the red herrings that made it difficult to figure out the solution to the crime? Was there someone you thought for sure did the deed?

3. Duffy tells the story from Evie Summerside's point of view. Does this work for you? What do you think of Evie? Is she believable? Did you feel that Evie talking about the case with other characters helped you keep thing straight?

4. Besides Evie  who stood out in the story? Did you have a favorite character? One you didn't care for?
