Lenora (09/09/07)

Enjoyed, but unhappy with depiction of
I enjoyed this even more than The Secret Servant (which I liked enough to want to read more of Silva's books.) The character development was richer, and the story was suspenseful from beginning to end. However, I wish that the author had not referred to the "mystical Catholic ways" of "the old signadora." Other than the sign of the cross, there was nothing Catholic about her ways.
