    Full review here many ways, it s a bit like reading the middle three books in Tales of the City, wherein what was current at the time of the writing isn t so much any While the issues might remain, they re no longer quite as immediate or as strongly opposed as they were at the time.

    The writing style is kind of flat, and the dialogue is awful Most of the book drags on and on with us finding out the same information about the dead guy over and over no one liked him, we get it I was going to give it two stars but I did really like the reveal , and I thought it ended well.
