I thought this book was a mystery-thriller, and it did keep me reading through the night to get to the ending, as it contains an interesting twist of a book-within-a-book. But the ending spoiled it completely for me. Without revealing it, turns out it's just very very hokey. I threw the book across the room when I was done I was so mad I'd wasted my time.
