This was an incredibly fast-pace book that was hard to put down once you started it. It draws you in from the very beginning.

I give this book a 3 star rating
Very good book, the only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that for lawyers, etc. Rosenberg always had them 'shouting' when they talked and I found that part unbelievable and the people are not very likable but the story was good.

Stella's key hope of proving her innocense is to do what the police cannot or will not do: find the killer who has mocked the law not once but twice.
