****I recieved this book from the Goodreads giveaways*****

I was intriqued when I read the description of this book and wanted to see how the author was going to set it all up. Three books written in different styles that were connected through a 20 year period? Sounds pretty cool.

I liked the writing in all three of the individual story and I though she captured the style of them really well. I wasn't completly sold on the storyline and kept wishing for something a little more exciting to happen in each book. Which is where the 3 star rating comes in. They were good stories but not great.

I was a little disappointed that she chose to use 2 characters to connect each story rather than the actual crime but I liked how each story was a progression from them being sideline characters to victims to criminals.

Overall, not a bad book but I think one that will need people who enjoy these type of crime novels to really appreciate it.
