This book is the debut novel written by this author and it shows. The synopsis made the book sound really interesting and it was for the most part. The only downfall was it was very repetitive and felt like the author was just trying to fill the pages. It did not focus on the murder very often and then felt very rushed to close the case at the end of the book.
