Keith Johnson I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway contest.

This is one of the weirdest books I have ever read. I blew through the first 60-65% or so and absolutely loved it. I do not reveal plot twists or plot points in my reviews, but suffice it to say; there is a MAJOR MAJOR plot twist in this book. I was on pace to reviewing this book as the best one I've read thus far in 2012 and giving it 5 stars. However, the twist was so unexpected that I just can't. I still would recommend this book, but the final 1/3 is so convoluted and somewhat confusing that I decided to knock it down to 4 stars. If you're a fan of murder mysteries that are NOT CONVENTIONAL, then read it. I am interested to see what others thought or will think after reading the book.

It starts off as kind of a The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but veers off to a totally different genre. Good luck and good reading!
