Alice asked:

Hi! I want to get this book for someone who loves mystery books. She likes police procedurals with no descriptions of torture. The description says the book, in part, follows a detective, so that sounds good! Is there any descriptions of torture? Thanks!!

Sona No, there's no long descriptions of torture. It's not a violent book.
Laura This book isn't a real mystery, even though there is a crime. The police actually do very little, and the story focuses more on the characters and their relationships than solving the crime.
