Review of The Friar's Lantern by Greg Hickey

You may win $1,000,000.

You will judge a man of murder.

An eccentric scientist tells you he can read your mind and offers to prove it in a high-stakes wager. A respected college professor exacts impassioned, heat-of-the-moment revenge on his wife's killer—a week after her death—and you're on the jury.

Take a Turing test with a twist, discover how your future choices might influence the past, and try your luck at Three Card Monte. And while you weigh chance, superstition, destiny, intuition and logic in making your decisions, ask yourself: are you responsible for your actions at all?

So choose wisely—if you can.

My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up having enjoyed the choose your own adventure books in the past. I loved the idea of solving a murder and also winning the money, and was happy to settle in and go along for the ride. I loved that the character was likeable, that the choices were easy enough to choose between and even though there were some when I thought I might choose differently, going back and forth, I adored the set up and the read through. Very much an exciting story and one that I would read again. Recommended to all those who love choosing their own adventures and crime fiction as well!
