The front of the book tells you not to tell the secret, so I will do my best not to.

What I will say is that I enjoyed this book. It was a relatively quick read (2 days!) but it's reasy to read something quickly when you can't put it down! I appreciated the way the author slowly unveils the secrets as he begins to fill the gaps in his story.

My one complaint is the ending- to me it was highly unsatisfying. I like stories that challenge me and make me uncomfortable (as this one did at times) to end in a manner that I can neatly pack away. That is not the ending here.

The books really makes you think- and ask yourself the ultimate question- "would you do it"?
