In My Opinion
This book was a great detective story. It was told by the first person point of view. The author would switch viewpoints, so you could know what all of the characters were thinking (including the killer). The main character in this story is Charlie Grant, who is fighting for her life. Other important characters include Detective D.D. Warren, and Charlie's aunt Nancy. From my interpretation of the book, the theme is about justice. Even though some people don't get what they deserve, it's never okay to take matters into your own hands; it will ruin your life, and the lives of the people you love. Overall, the book really kept my attention. I would recommend it to any reader who can stomach descriptive murders, along with edge-of-your-seat suspense.
