When it comes to anything that falls within that crime genre I find that I either love the book or toss it into my DNF pile. Thankfully this particular book landed in the love-it area. I love how intelligently the whole thing is written and how intricate the various threads are that Ransom has expertly weaved throughout the novel and how layered the characters are. I rarely rate a book with all five stars as to me that means it’s a nearly-perfect book and I am very picky at to what qualifies as nearly-perfect and we all know that nothing is perfect. Ransom is as close to creating a perfect book as I’ve found in a long time. I loved the read so much I forgot about dinner, much to my youngest’s dismay. I didn’t want to put the book down even for a moment. I dreamed about reading the book! I am so very thankful that I received this book through Smith Publicity in exchange for an honest review, and no, that had no effect on my opinion.
