You will get swept up into the suspense as each page is turned.

This is one of the best books I've read.
From page to page, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It wasn't difficult to imagine myself in the book due to the descriptions of each moment. There were so many twists to the story that even when you think you have cracked the case, the author throws you a curveball.

The only part of this story that was unrealistic was when Jennifer became so involved in the case. In reality, one could not be involved as much as she was. I felt that the Detective was relying on her to solve the case instead of doing his own
