I picked this book up at the library without knowing anything about it. The book really drew me in and the first half was very promising. But ugh! it the book was so unsatisfying as it was moving to conclusion. I am not a big fan of plot twists that tie things up very nicely (and very unrealistically), and in the last 10 pages of the book, several "problems" were magically solved by coincidence. I would be hard pressed to recommend the book.
