Syuha Rosly: It is a very interesting crime solving, mytery story. I like how it was injected with a bit of romance in between. Although, it was a bit jumpy on the scene transition, and a bit confusing on which point of view we are currently reading. Overall the plot was good and I enjoy reading it.
