Ope’s Opinion: I think for most mystery readers this may be a 4 or 5 chair. I am more of a who-done-it reader, so this had a bit more graphic details of what happened at the murder scene to the victims then I prefer. The intensity was there through the whole book, the story felt realistic and the characters were ones you really cared about.
The beginning was a little hard to understand – I felt like I walked into a part two of a series, but this was part one -( I should have read the prequel ). From page one the relationships were already developed and it was written as if I already knew the relationships between people. After a couple of chapters I understood who was who.
Although this is a series, I felt it ended well and wrapped things up for this book. Some of the relationships were left open, but I felt satisfied with the ending.
