The story is a gory mystery with a lot of murder and scenes of mutilated bodies. The book is fast paced and it fills the reader with curiosity as to who the murderer could be. The development of the characters, and the plot twists and the turns add to the book's suspense. The reader keeps wondering who the murderer is.
