    I m really not a mystery reader The only reason I even picked this book up was because it was written by a family friend But I got into right away, the opening really sucks you in Funny and suspenseful overall.

  9. Ellen says:

    The first half was so great, then the ending was awful Good character development and dark humor, but plot developments that made no sense and required too much suspension of disbelief Don t waste your time.
