Le léger manque de sensualité que j’attends dans ce genre de roman a été compensé par une enquête menée tambours battants par son héros. Un héros qui, à vrai dire, m’a plus envoûtée que son héroïne à laquelle je n’ai pas réussi à m’attacher.

This book was well done though I found the characters to be a little stunted, that said this book is one of a series perhaps they'd come through more rounded out if I read more. Bottom line; I liked the book and would recommend it to anyone wanting just a simple straightforward story to loose themselves in for a few hours.

Another step in to who done it. We learn who did it, but not who the mastermind behind the whole thing is. Another step closer though. This was a good story along the way.

Update: just finished the whole series and it was great. Need to read them all and in order to get the whole story.
