Also you know how the “detective duo” always consists of two lifelong friends, one of them who is always the “main one”. For example Sherlock and Watson. Well, in this book it’s two friends who only know each other for a year. I would want to say that I wish they knew each other longer, but then again I know there are more books in the series so I’m hoping what the author is trying to do, is build up their relationship before our very eyes. My last comment is that I felt that the ending was a bit rushed since the story stretched out for 324 pages, but the actual ending in which everything was explained was only for a few pages. I liked the index at the end of the book explaining the key words because I thought the idea itself was very cute however, I wish I had that index while reading because a lot of words would have made more sense. You know how in a murder mystery you always try to guess the least expected person because it’s the least expected that person that turns out to be the murder? MINOR SPOILER ALERT! Well, the person who does turn out to be the murder is the person you least expected it to be, but the author does such a good job of hiding him/her that you don’t give him/her any attention until the murder is solved.
