Book Review: Under Lock & Skeleton Key

5 stars

Genre: Traditional Mystery/ Amateur Sleuth/ Impossible Crime

Fascinating story. I particularly loved Tempest and her multicultural background with all the interesting family histories and global experiences. I also adored the centrality of magicians and illusions in this book.

A gothic cozy, this novel offers a touch of the supernatural with the Raj family curse. It’s a new subgenre with interesting mystery possibilities. This is layered with an impossible crime, and I’m always in awe of those who can pull off a locked-room mystery with ease. Pandian does everything brilliantly.

The concluding parts of this novel feature a lot of misdirection, twists, and turns. Overall, it’s a very unique and enthralling mystery. Can’t wait for more magical reading experiences within this new series!
