There is nothing like pressure when it comes to solving crimes, especially the ones with shocking consequences. 


It’s a disappointing day when an anticipated mystery and thriller kills the joy for you because of the plot narration. With numerous character perspectives there is a constant back and forth thatbis quite distracting from the main plot – the case of disappearance. For those who are expecting a thrilling mystery and an equally stimulating end, you will definitely be disappointed. But If you want to learn and experience and enjoy character development, then you can go for this book. The level of character development is quite impressive but the back and forth does make a difficult pace to continue reading it. 

The cover inage and title is intriguing and will definitely attract your attention and make you want to delve further. 

My opinion: I am mostly a plot person and with the plot, Inform a bond with the character. For me it is very important that there is a story. For this reason alone, I did not like or enjoy the book. But those who want to delve into character, learn and study nuances, they will definitely enjoy this book. 

My rating: 2.5 out of 5
