“I love the story of More Deaths Than One. Pat Bertram blends mystery/suspense with history very well. Her characters are strong, and I love the slow reveal of who Bob really was/is. The hints and clues Bertram drops come together for me with the jungle nightmares.The descriptions of the places Bob and Kerry visit are exquistely done; the places sound real. I enjoyed this story very much.” Rachael Wollet, freelance editor.
