This book was brought to my attention by it’s author and after I read a small ‘preview’ of the story I was immediately sucked into the story. I love a good mystery/thriller, especially with so many plot twists. Of course I’m not going to spoil anything, just to keep up with the mystery of it all. The story gets off a bit slow start and throughout the story not much is revealed as to who the real culprit is. I think that’s part of the charm of this book. It keeps you guessing and with how short it is, the author does a pretty good job with holding the readers attention till the very end. Now about the ending itself, I think it would perhaps be better had the author decided to stop at the 32 chapter, with the detectives going for a beer. For me, what happened after that kinda bordered on fiction. It was just too implausible and unrealistic and that ruined the perfect ending for me. Maybe some readers will enjoy that kind of an ending, but for me, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. Nonetheless, overall I still think it’s a good story with a great plot. It’s definitely worth a read.
