Our customer reviews

Promissory Payback is actually one of the shortest novels I\'ve ever read. But that\'s nice, especially after reading The Lonely Polygamist and The Help. Just perfect for a rainy afternoon. It\'s a short crime story about detective Jane Perry. She\'s investigating the murder of Carolyn Handel, a woman so much hated that almost everyone that knows her could have killed her. Perry finds out that Handel is stealing money from people that trusted her and thought they were investing in real estate. Quite a motivation for murder. So, less then 100 pages, It\'s a quick read, also due to the fact that the book is fast and fun to read. Dewey\'s writing style is fluid, sharp and descriptive, The story develops in a gripping pace, it catches you from the beginning but in the end it really lacks action and suspense. It wasn\'t that much of a brainteaser to understand who did it. Nevertheless, I did enjoy reading this more
