I loved the title and had planned to read this book for some time before I actually got to it.
I liked the story it self, for me it was a nice detective. Young girls are murdered in a small community, Joseph gets obsessed to solve the case and find the murderer. It had all the elements of a good thriller. I liked reading it.
But what I like most about these novels is the writing. I really like his style, it doesn't feel like you're reading a thriller when you look at the writing - it feels good. And I thought it has a wonderful title!
I've read multiple books by RJ Ellory, but I believe this is my favourite.
Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
