Honestly, I don't know what to think...

A couple of the stories were okay. But most were confusing to me. I listened to the whole thing but I just don't get it. Most ended seemingly in the middle of the story.

Love Ruth Randell

Ruth Randell is one of my favorite writers. However, I don’t think I will ever get another dramatized book. I had the hardest time trying to figure out what was happening in most of these stories.
