    Book: John Anthony Miller Author: A Crime Through Time Review: With this book, I'd like all of you to step into your time machines. We are going back in time. Back to the year 1874. Paris was beautiful as ever, even amidst a very tragic crime. An artist's model is murder and a socialite posing for the artist is being stalked. Fast forward to the year 1956, where a young widow in Normandy inherits a house and 8 paintings, with mysterious and cryptic notes that are apparently clues to a crime. The Book: John Anthony Miller Author: A Crime Through Time Review: With this book, I'd like all of you to step into your time machines. We are going back in time. Back to the year 1874. Paris was beautiful as ever, even amidst a very tragic crime. An artist's model is murder and a socialite posing for the artist is being stalked. Fast forward to the year 1956, where a young widow in Normandy inherits a house and 8 paintings, with mysterious and cryptic notes that are apparently clues to a crime. The situation call for a detective, and we have one. A rather pompous and proud one. The story has two different mysteries scattered in two different times, with clues and hints all over the pages of the book. This is a chance for readers to play detective and solve this strange crime. I love a good mystery and this story gave me it. Mystery being one of my most favourite genre. This mystery is folds and unfolds on several different levels. I am very excited for my fellow readers to read and enjoy this very exciting and engaging story.

    Quite a page-turner. I loved the idea of two time periods tied together with mysteries. Great characters, and I couldn’t wait to discover how it all connected with the ‘surprises’ that popped up throughout the chapters.
