After the disappointing 8th Confession, I didn't have high expectations with this book. Surprisingly, it was actually enjoyable. Here are the reasons why I like this book:

1. The lipstick killer. I like intelligence, even in serial killers. The harder they are to catch and figure out, the more difficult it is for the police to outsmart him, the more exciting it is for me because I become increasingly frustrated to get him caught. Dumb criminals invoke a 'meh' reaction from me because unless they undergo a miracle, they're bound to get caught in the end anyway.

2. The Hello Kitty burglar. I liked how the Kitty burglar was somehow pitiful, not in a snide way but sincerely worth the pity. She's like the female version of Robin Hood, only instead of giving the money to the poor, she's saving it up to save the person she people she loves, including herself.

3. How everything was intertwined. You'll understand after you read the book. Now go ahead and read it.
