Very good mysteryI liked this story. It's thrilling and has lot of mystery. I didn't like the ending but overall I think it's very good.
The plot is interesting, and worthy of 3 stars. However, the actual writing brings the rating down. Despite the acknowledged help of at least 2 editors, there are numerous typos throughout the book. In addition, the text is clearly written by a non-American English-speaker, as there are numerous phrases and terms used that are not common in America, not used in that way in America, or that just don't make sense in American English. The book reads as though it were written by someone whose knowledge of America, and the American police and legal systems, has been gained through watching inaccurate movies and TV. The characterizations are often sexist and/or racist, with the description of and lines spoken by the French family's maid being the most offensive. In general, the writing is amateurish and poorly constructed. However, I do feel the story holds some promise, but it definitely needs a much more thorough and rigorous editing by a professional.
Nice murder mystery thriller
