    Yup Five stars.Actually, by the half way mark I was simply enjoying the novel for how much depth and detail all the characters got The mystery and the murder and the mayhem hadn t even really begun yet I just got to revel in the characterizations I didn t mind that there were a handful of them, from the cop, her daughter, the killer, the blogger, to the heroic ex addict ex murderer ex slumlord.True, at some poin
