this was an excellent read. the author tells the story from several different points of view, including the suspect's, and it's fascinating to be inside all the different heads. i wasn't sure how it was all going to fit together, but it did, and very well, but not without lots of twists and turns along the way. the moment when i found out "whodunit" was incredible...it totally took me by surprise..."did i just read what i thought i read?"
the only false note, for me, was the idea of the extremely intelligent lead female detective falling in love at first sight with her boss.
highly recommend and can't wait to read the rest in the series.
