I had a couple issues with the book, specifically the believability of the premise, and the repetitiveness of a cop getting too obsessed/into the case just like in the first book of this series, but otherwise it was a compelling read and I enjoyed the way it played out. I’ve read a lot of reviews that say the killer is obvious from very early on, and I’d agree with that, but the point of the book didn’t feel like you were meant to be figuring it out. It felt more focused on the interplay of the characters, and read less like a traditional mystery, and I liked that.
