really liked it
Read from March 12 to 30, 2012

This is an ok mystery but not as good as the professional reviews suggested it was. There are 3 things I like in a mystery -- quirky, eccentric detectives, and interesting premise, and (most importantly) an "ah hah" moment (meaning that I can't figure out the solution to the mystery but when it is finally revealed it's clear that I should have been able to figure it out (i.e. the clues were all there, but I somehow didn't put them together).

Unwanted only hit 1 out of 3. The premise is great, but the three main characters were unlikeable or just plain blah. Also I figured out the connection between the victims way too early, so no surprises at the end.

However I gave it 4 stars because I think the series has great potential with more character development and more sophisticated clues/plot.
