This is definitely one of those books that suck you in as soon as you start reading it. It is a smart thriller that keeps you guessing until the end.
Norman, the protagonist, is a flawed character. Now, this might feel like a cliché, the jaded detective, but it really doesn’t feel like it at all as you read. The author does such a nice job of shaping him into a fully-dimensional character that he is able to avoid Norman being forgotten amidst all the similar characters in this genre.
This book is more than just a thriller, though, since the writing lends itself for deeper analysis. There are some lovely images and thoughtful scenes that we don’t usually get in this genre. It really added to the ambience. The details and descriptions never get in the way of the plot, however, highlighting the important things instead of overwhelming them.
This is one thriller that I would recommend for all lovers if this genre or anyone looking for an edge-of-your-seat read.
