Goodnight Irene
Hired to stop a murder at a birthday party, Detective Rowan Manory needs to solve a 20-year-old case to save his client from unwrapping a deadly and perhaps deserved gift of revenge.

Assessment:

Plot: Byrnside delivers a classic, historical murder mystery that maintains focus and tension up until its satisfying conclusion. 

Prose: Prose effectively serves the story, yet does not always shine. Dialogue is generally vivid, witty, and allows readers to easily differentiate between characters.

Originality: The highly original backdrop of the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, greatly enhances Byrnside's storytelling, while infusing the narrative with historical resonance. 

Character Development: The author crafts a lively cast of unpredictable characters with secrets, peculiarities, and potentially nefarious intentions.
