This novel has an interesting, psychologically complex crime, with some tense and exciting moments. It's easy to read, entertaining, and chilling. Until you get to the end.
The detective is ineffectual and his efforts in detecting the solution are almost non-existent. He does almost nothing to find out the murderer, who in the end is tracked only because he/she/they give themself away. The final revelation of the criminal's identity leaves you thinking "But who's that?".
