See my review for Moonshine 1 for my opinion why 3 not 4 stars but oddly enough the Kindle edition of this book that I read was not called "Haytham, The Secret in The Rubble. This was one of those books that I could not read fast enough to see the outcome. To then only be disaappointed with the ending of the book to the point it ruined the whole book for me.
