Actually I would give this book 3,5 because Th first half in my opinion deserves 3 stars but the second half is much better and it is 4 star material . For me the book was quite good as a whole. At the beginning the plot was unfolding a little too slowly, the fact that the crimes and investigation start at the beginning doesn't help much because I really wanted the pace of action to be fast but it turn out to be of medium speed. When we pass to the second half of the book the pace becomes faster and book is getting more absorbing. The plot was quite interesting. The fact that it is 6th book in the series and I haven't read the previous ones makes this novel the one I meet the characters. They are very interesting people with complicated histories which shaped them. Every character is unique and they are so different that the reader can easily distinguish them, not as in some books where background characters are so similar that they are hard to identify. The huge plus of the book is that it is written in the way that when you read it and there is something mentioned that had happened in previous novels there is a quick reminder what it was about so the reader can understand the connection it has to the events which are happening now, but it's not so long that it's boring. At first when I was reading I wasn't pleased with the book but as I was getting further and further I find it more likable.
