I thought the story would be interesting enough, murder, mystery, detective, everything I like in a good read, I figured why not? But this was so strangely written, and I mean in the grammatical sense, I had a hard time following the story. I have never seen a writer use so many hyphens, and the sentence structure was really off for me. Was it due to translation? I do not know but it made it really hard to read. How I finished I do not know.

It starts of a little slow, bouncing from one character to another. It didn't get interesting until the second half of the book. The ending was quick and unfinished, not satisfying at all.

Like I said, the premise was good but the characters were uninteresting, the ending unsatisfying, and the writing style, not for me in the least. Why I took the time to finish, well, in for a penny.
