No, I wouldn't jump at reading another book by this author, I found the development of characters very flat and one dimensional, at times confusing. I am not sure if my confusion stemmed from the narrators mix of characters voice changes.."the countess" in particular. I am sorry to say that I didn't persevere to find out who carried out the macabre murders.. Best of luck to those who do persevere.
Confusion and disappointment, something lacking.
