My Review:

After a long time, I finished a book in a week! It’s a decent mystery! But nothing special about it other than that. From the beginning, the story hypes the thrilling part and I could assume most of us could easily predict the twists, still the rap of the story is good to grip us on. I was expecting the climax to be something different with an amazing twist but no it’s just plain and the final twist seems very illogical. Overall I would recommend it if you are looking for something peaceful yet good thriller!


Thoughts while reading:


From the beginning, we can look forward to the answers and so the first part of the story was engaging us.


After revealing the suspense the story was chaotic, the reactions were not so acceptable and the logic less fire and the way the story finished after that disappointed me!


The most unbelievable thing is the climax, I would prefer if something darker should have been a climax than this squeezed feel-good climax .


Overall the climax could be much better!
