Read from April 24 to 28, 2010 — I own a copy

I would probably give this book four and a half stars if such a thing were possible because, while it really was very, very good, there were a few things about it that were off-putting. It took some time to really get into and I would say I spent the first third toying with the idea of just putting it aside, but then it got suddenly very interesting. The title character herself is a very interesting, nuanced, and even at time difficult character and it was for her that I kept reading even through I had my doubts. In the end it was quite worth it as the solutions to the various mysteries and intrigues running through the book were both satisfying and unexpected. Readers should be forewarned that the book includes scenes of notable violence against women.
