My Review / My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I must say that I don’t really like books that involve detectives and crimes. But occasionally a story grabs my attention and I give it a try.
This is one of those books that really impressed me. From the beginning I was grabbed by the story and I had to stop several times and just let myself recover from what I just read. I don’t know if what really made me love this book is the fact that children were involved or the fact that we didn’t know what to expect. The struggle of the parents and the dedication of the medical staff is impressive.
The entire book is based on two families that were killed, and as the story evolves you keep thinking that anyone involved can be a suspect. I really liked the fact that we didn’t have clues until the last few chapters. Like this, the suspense was present until the end.
If you like a good suspense and crime book, I highly recommend giving this a try!
Thanks for reading!
