Very readable book. I probably enjoyed book one just that little bit more, but still, book 2 powers along and pulls the reader in, until you find yourself reading the book in to the early hours, thinking... just one more chapter, until you've gone and devoured the whole darn thing.
A great main character, who is both flawed and brilliant. The mystery is complex, leading the reader through twists and turns, throwing up red herrings and setting multiple characters up as the possible murderer.
No romance, instead mystery, murder and intrigue is the name of the game.
