Tempted by promising cover overview I expected fast paced novel, full of suspense and action but the general feeling is a little bit disappointing. The books started as a police story with interesting mystery and intriguing characters but then changed into more small ‘family saga’, especially in the middle section. Characters could be really engaging but there’s too much background that slows down the pace and somehow mixes genres. The narration, which is led in first person was a forecast of emotional story but it somehow turned out to be UNemotional. The book resembles the up side down short story where slow beginning and middle turns into unexpected but very short ending.
The book was a fast reader and the author had some idea for the story. However, in some part it didn't work for me.
