This was plenty twisty and turny, although I don't think it quite reaches the heights of the previous novel, also I sort of guessed part of it, although I also got part of it wrong - so maybe the truth is that I spotted that something might be important and part of the mystery. Anyway, loved it, read it in a single day and couldn't put it down. I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
