“From day one Temple wanted to crush her like a bug. He was cruel” (Cornwell 353). In the quote describes how Temple completely despised his twin sister Rachael.

First, I like From Potter’s Field because the book was the last book in the series. Books that end the series are always so well made and everything comes together very well at the end, such as Gault dying. I also liked the book because the amount that of times Gault showed up.

In the book there was many points where I just thought “Wow” because the dialogue just described a hand full of events. An example of this is when Gault murdered Rachael. Cornwell had had Kay and Benton go back and forth talking about the scene and using words such as crimson blood and fleshy white. This was my opinion on the book From Potter’s
