4.5 stars
A good mystery is the one that can keep you guessing but at the same time give a good, solid, and best of all, complicated NON two dimensional characters that make you feel for them.

This one simply delivers on all counts. Both Roger, the hard detective that first seems to want to detach himself from anything that might close to relationship (since he lost his partner years ago) and Sean, the brother of a victim who is fighting his inner turmoil hook me right from the get go. It's so interesting to see their interaction. Added with a good murder mystery that frame the whole story -- and I must say this is one of the most satisfying mystery I've read this year. If only this is part of a series ...

This is my first experience with A.M. Riley, so I'm looking forward to find out more about her works.
