Latter-Day Cipher - Latayne C. Scott I finished 80 pages, then gave up. Plot: great hook, interesting opening chapter. We then get a strong Mormons-are-strange theme coming through at the expense of moving the plot forward. It's supposed to be suspense, so should be focusing on the bodies or the code, not the fact that the protagonist's mother has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.Characters: The guy who found the murder victim had potential. The main character? Not so much. Her LDS cousin? Shallow. He's a TV presenter so that could be intentional, but still. Christian themes: none. Writing: Bad. Distant POV, which doesn't endear me to the characters.The author has commented on some of the critical reviews on Amazon, which is 'off' IMO.
