First off I love the cover! Now on to the review. It started off a bit slow for my taste. I was kind of 50/50 with this story it had high points and low points. I liked the detective. As far as the victim I found it too frustrating to get through the dialogue with himself that I got to where I did not care to know who Charles really was. Some of writing is clever but gets boring when it gets too in depth with descriptions. I might try another title by this author.
