 I have to be honest, its the reason I was allowed to read this book. It had been sitting on my Netgalley shelf for a while as I fitted it into my schedule and got sorted out, however I was unable to finish the book. Unfortunately this review is a lot short than my other ones because this book just didn't hook me as much as I wanted it to.

I was loving the first few pages, it really had me looking forward tot eh rest of the book but suddenly the setting changed, and names I didn't know were thrown in and they were the main characters of this book I believe. Maybe this was all down to it being the 3rd book of the series as I hadn't read the others but non the less. After the pages had past where I was hooked I forced myself through about another chapter before I had to give in, I never like to abandon a book that seemed so promising but because I had no idea who these people were, and they were also speaking a different language that put up a small language barrier that simple confused me and put me off a little. I could in no way enjoy the book if I had to force myself through it and it soon became unbearable to push myself through so unfortunately I had to put the book down for good.

Even though the first few pages seemed promising I was let down but I give the book a 1 out of 5, I have to suggest this book to anyone who's read the other three or simply wants a new crime fiction series to read. I must admit the downfall with me and this book is mostly down to the fact I hadn't read the other books first and from reviews I have seen from others, this book and its series is wonderful so please check it out and don't go by my word.
