    Delicious Mystery

    Wow! I could not put Countdown to Death down. I'm was so torn, though, finding myself in the throes of that delightful paradox of wanting to savour each lyrical line and wanting to race through to find out what happened next! Seriously, such a good read. A treat for anyone who loves a good mystery, with unforgettable characters, deliciously dark humor, and a truly original story. Two words: Emperor Ming.

    Great homage to a classic!

    I don't understand the reviewer who thought this was a "rip off" of Agatha Christie. Guess he didn't read the entire introduction? About why the author chose to do this? Not sure how it was possible to miss that, but OK. So it's a deliberate updating of a public domain work--it's legal, and several other authors have done it too. (It's even in the book description!!) But McChesney does it brilliantly, and I love the setting in Scotland (and the surprise ending--that I wasn't expecting!).

    Excellent read. Surprise ending.

    Well written. Great plot and storyline. Recommend read!! Should be made into a movie. You are held in suspense from the beginning.

    Countdown to death

    To me this book seems to be a total copy of a book written by Agatha Christie And Then There Were None, which has been made into a film and was shown on TV before Christmas. I can not believe that anyone has the right to copy so absolutely a work by anyone let alone Agatha Christie and then charge people for it. Absolutely outrageous this should not happen!
