I started out really enjoying this book, but that was short lived.
It is a thriller, murder mystery about a young man who's body is discovered, the local obituaries writer then begins investigating his death - which at first I found a bit strange, but then later on it is explained that he used to be an investigative journalist etc. He enlists the help of another journalist and they go about solving the mystery.

I felt that the book was too over descriptive, for example when someone logged on to a computer, it was explained exactly what he clicked in step by step instructions, where just knowing that he logged on would have been fine. With these descriptions, i felt that it dragged on a bit and took away from the initial excitement of first of all the murder, and second the relationships between the characters.

I was able to follow the story throughout, the science sections were explained in an easy to follow way, and I did like the characters - unfortunately, the writing style just didn't do it for me.
