Two Tocks before Midnight

Reader’s Review

” Two Tocks Before Midnight is a short story set in the mid 1800’s and is the first of the Agora Mystery series. It’s similar to a Sherlock Holmes story. I’m not usually fond of short stories but this was pretty good. It’s very well written and perfect for a quick lunch time or bed time read. ”

” For those who want to know: This is a clean read with a bit of non-graphic violence. ”
