A study of her childhood reveals that she kept secrets from everyone. It also helps Alex set a trap for the killer.

Fair

I found the book fair reading, yet perdictable. I felt it was extremly slow at points but rushed thrgh the climax at the end.

Lacks resolution, obnoxiously unsatisfying.

Great big story, teeny tiny conclusion. Pointlessly abrupt ending that failed to satisfy. I have come to expect more from this series.
