    there were some things I liked, but others that didn't thrill me.  The way that clues appeared just when the characters had almost given up, and then MAGICALLY, some branch breaks or something and the next clue shows up.  That happened over and over, and it seemed like pretty unsophisticated story-telling.  The other thing that bothered me a lot was how the story line shifted from place to place and character to character with no logical segway between.  You'd be reading about something happening in one place to one person and suddenly (and I do mean suddenly) you'd be somewhere else reading about somebody else.  But everyone in our family is sick and I wasn't deep into the book, so it was an okay read.  I'm not sure if I'll look for any more books in the series.

    I can't remember how much I paid for the prime benefits, but it wasn't much.  Plus I got a $50 credit when I signed up, so it feels like a real deal.  I love being able to borrow a book from Amazon once a month for free, and I love having my Kindle linked to Amazon to get books downloaded so easily.  I'm hooked.
