Overall, a somewhat disappointing read: Yes, it's a fast page-turner, but the story itself is full of holes and the characters are neither believable nor likable. It's also rather sexist - the two main female characters (Monika and Suzanne) are consistently referred to as "bitch" and seem to be driven mainly by jealousy, whereas the main male characters are referred to by their names. There are a lot of gratuitous little sex-scenes that do nothing for the story. Besides, when you include German words/names/sentences - at least make sure they are correct!
