I give this book a 5 Apr 23, 2003
What a wonderful read! I could not put the book down. I loved to see the return of her character Glenda. This book reminds me of many Agatha Christy books I read. Ms. Fleming's characters all have such distinct personalities.
It's nice to read a book that doesn't have an obvious ending. I was kept in suspense until the very end!!
I really enjoyed it.... Apr 23, 2003
You won't want to put it down! A great follow-up to Fleming's Jazz Age Murders. I love her characters - so colorful, especially Jan, the alcoholic, neurotic, and Amanda the controlling sister of the suspected Robby Saxony. Set in the small town of Glen Ayre, the "factory" holds many secrets that are discovered by the detailed and probing Glenda, the sleuth in all Fleming's mysteries.
The prior anonymous review seems suspiciously harsh. I would highly recommend to aspiring writers - or any reader who enjoys mystery novels. Fleming's style is flowing and fun. Read it!
Glenda returns Apr 23, 2003
It is so nice to read a book with such fluid style. I've previously read "The Jazz Age Murders" and her short story collection "One Impulsive Black Rose". Like her previous works, I find her characters well rounded and very reminiscent of such greats as, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Dashiell Hammett. I highly recommend this book it is a wonderful, quick read.

Shame on the editor that let this book see the light of day. The thoughts are jumbled, the prose awkward, and the grammar and punctuation often incorrect. The characters are poorly drawn stereotypes that stumble through a ridiculously overwrought plot.
The one bright spot is that this book can forever serve aspiring writers as an example of what NOT to do.
