I was gifted a free copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review. The book was a pleasant surprise ever since the complex plot of crimes presents itself in the first 2 chapters. The story completely enveloped me in 2 intertwined mysteries related to the main detective character. Several human traits of the MC developed along with the police suspense plot, such as addiction to the emotional loss of someone close, which enhanced my connection to the MC and made it more real, leading me to sympathize and cheer for her. The author knew how to bring these elements of human reality to the MC very well and that makes us more involved throughout each chapter.
The way the crimes are presented, always leading to several questions and doubts throughout the investigation, makes the plot more plausible and the idea won me over from the beginning. The mix of characters made the plot intriguing and I was questioning motives and suspects, which the author knew how to unfold little by little throughout the book, as if he wanted me to become the MC’s assistant detective. I felt completely part of the investigation and connected to the MC to solve the mystery. The characters were presented along the story in a way that kept me interested in the plot until the very end. I really enjoyed this suspense and will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
