MY THOUGHTS : I read this book without having read the previous ones, and it didn't trouble me at all : I was completely hooked to that book! I almost read it in one go.
This is a story full of mysteries, cleverly built and turning the whole book into a thriller full of action. The main theme is a reflexion on life and death, the atmosphere is gloomy and sometimes bloody, but never too much and not in a disturbing way.
I sympathised with the heroin right from the beginning and was intrigued until the end. CSI fans, you'll love this book !
