This book inevitably stopped me from doing what I had planned for the day. I had difficulty putting it down. The storyline is gripping, twists and turns that bump right back into themselves. The prologue seemed promising, full of intrigue and tension, and the anticipation of getting a good read hooked me. Concerning the plot, I thought it was solid. The story is filled with several potential suspects, and I was not completely sure who the murder was until well into the story. In my opinion it is very well written and believable.

 I enjoy the supporting characters and how they interact with each other and the main character. The author knows how to show us, rather than tell us, and he does it with such interesting characters and events. This book should come with a warning label: "Do not start reading until you're able to finish it, because it is impossible to put down." It's an easy read and keeps you interested enough to want to knock off the entire book in one sitting.
