(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I did have a bit of a false start with this book – probably because I tried reading it after less than five hours sleep and therefore failed miserably to get very far in.
I think I made up for that today, though. I found this book really easy to read and although there was quite a lot of switching between POVs, I was able to like and care about the different characters.
I felt that the main characters were well-written and well-rounded, but there were an awful lot of sexist jerks. Some of the behaviour, I couldn’t believe certain characters were able to get away with.
The mystery in this book worked pretty well and there were quite a lot of things I didn’t see coming. I did find myself getting a little bogged down at times, though.
I think the POV switching towards the end didn’t work very well. There were chapters made up of only a few paragraphs and those were a little frustrating, because it kept taking me away from the action I wanted to read more about.
Kees was a character I wasn’t quite sure about. I didn’t like him for a lot of the book, but by the end, he was starting to grow on me a bit.
I felt the author did quite a good job of linking together the different mysteries and I could see a lot of the book’s events happening in my mind. I think I’d be interested in reading more books by this author in the future – and especially more books involving the characters in this one.
