What started in the beginning with a bunch of disjointed chapters, ended with a complete mystery. As a reader who loves a little suspense and mystery, as a whole I enjoyed this book, but the beginning got me so twisted that it took awhile for me to start getting into the story.
With a lot of characters who are easy to intermingle, this book is not for the faint of the heart. I admit to a little post it noting so that I could keep all the people straight, it was hard. As for the story, I love when you cannot predict a mystery - I never want to know where it will end and with this one I was pleasantly clueless until the end.
A book that I would recommend to those who love a little mystery and suspense. It is worth putting all the puzzle pieces together to solve all of the who dun its.
