Really enjoyed this book. Great characters, dialogue...writing that was descriptive and fast paced, very gripping !
This isnt a great read but it holds the reader's interest. The small small clues are drizzled before us but leave room for surprises. It morphs into a low gore horror book. Good for a bitterly cold winter read :-)
