I really enjoyed this novel - the first "Gunna" novel I read. I since read the first and third ones. I do wish my public library had more of Bates's books available and I'd really like them as audio books (I especially like Davina Porter's reading).

The second novel, just as engrossing as the first. Gunna is a marvel.
