It's not bad overall although i was unable to relate to Jenna. I did not find her likeable at all in this book. The overall story does not compare well to his previous book, Death on a High Floor.

I did not enjoy Kate Rudd's' male renditions. Furthermore, I found the second part of the book boring and I struggled to complete it.
