Passage from book: The walk up the steps of the scaffold was the longest of Sean's life. He was momentarily surprised to see the judge waiting for him on the platform, but a second later he stepped onto the trapdoor and felt the rope tighten around his neck and all other thoughts vanished. The sun was in Sean's face, and not wishing to see the faces in the crowd, he welcomed the excuse to close his eyes. The noises around him and the feel of the rope as it scraped the tender skin of his neck were all he could take.
My overall opinion: Very exciting and very very good! I really enjoyed this book. I agree with you, Miss Laurie, that this one is one of the best! The story had several extremely exciting and interesting twists and I highly recommend it.
