REVIEW: A couple of weeks ago I joined Book Blogs, a few days later I got a request to review this book. It wasn’t something that I normally read, however the plot intrigued me, and so I said sure I’ll read it. I then forgot all about it. When it came in the mail last week, I remembered that I had agreed to read the book. I picked it up and started reading it while I was making dinner. I read the first couple of chapters and then put it aside as I was reading 3 other books at the same time, and I had a deadline to finish those. Last night I was finally able to get back to this book and I am so glad.
The is Mr. Grandhi’s first book and I have to say I as first books go this one is amazing. I loved the writing style, the flow of the story, and his knowledge about the medical field.
Peter the psychologist, and Leia the FBI agent both have a keen understanding of their fields of expertise. Leia wants to find the murderer, and Peter wants to help his patient Naya. As they both work their respective fields it becomes very clear that the person that committed the murder was one disturbed person.
If you like mysteries and a good story line then this is a book for you. I have to say that I will be looking for more books from him in the future.
