    Death of a Robber Baron) [Pdf/E–book] Ç Charles OBrien I was incredibly disappointed in this book not so much the storyline but the execution The words stodgy and old fashioned come to mind Granted it's a historical mystery but that doesn't mean the writing has to be so stilted The premise is excellent and I think the main character of Pamela has great potential but it's never realized because of the out dated writing style When we first meet her it's the one year anniversary of he
