** Minor spoiler below **


This wasn't at all what I expected, but it was an unchallenging read and a bit of escapism.

What sounds like a murder mystery quickly becomes a supernatural tale that introduces an early form of vampirism. Once you suspend disbelief a little you can sit back and enjoy it well enough.
