Real surprise to read. Never heard of author. Couldn't put it down. Really great mystery book.
forced myself to finish because I spent 10 bucks on it...not worth the ten.
Not the best writing or the deepest characters, but it was a good story.
I really enjoy this book, it kept me guessing till the end.
