I loved this book!!!! Technically, almost error free and quite well written. This is a complex murder mystery that is cleanly written which means it is safe for teenagers to read as well as adults. I tried figuring out who the culprits were but McDonald weaves twists in her work. Five stars all the way! I loved the characters, even the guilty ones, and the intrigue is amzing!
