I'm a sucker for a good mystery/thriller story and this was so good. I was so close to give it a 5 star rating but I just couldn't.
I love the writing within this book. It so strange how I always say I'm not a fan of thrid erson however lately every time I read a book in third person I've been loving them. Maybe it's me growing into a different reading phase, or me just growing older and liking new things, who knows?
I loved the different characters within this book and how third dimensional the whole situation and the characters felt to me. I will say the story did start lagging a little half way and I felt like there was a whole lot of nothing happening at one point but I guess it's the whole suspense to build you up to the final few chapters.
I will say this is one book I didn't actually guess what was going to happen. I can see where it all adds up now from reading it and I knew from the start the one particular part but the rest blew my mind. I loved that it did that because I find it so hard to pick up books that don't have a predictable ending.
Overall this book was great, really really great.
