Nachdem sie weite Teile Asiens bereist hatte, absolvierte sie ein Studium an der American University in Washington DC und schloss dieses mit einem MA in Film ab.

Buio, inquietante, mozzafiato, alto livello di tensione e stile potente, non si riesce a smettere di leggerlo. Una grande scoperta, diciamo che le stelline sono da 3 a 4.

I downloaded this book as a Free Friday selection for my nook from Barnes and Noble. It took a bit to get into and it was a bit gory in parts, but all in all, it was a good read. I won't rush out to get the next book in the series, but at some point, I wouldn't mind reading more by this author.

It just now occurred to me that this is mostly a sort of ghoulish retelling of The Thin Man.

Nice to read a mystery that's unravelled enough that I'm left wondering how it appears to have been solved halfway into the book. Look forward to reading more of Hayder's books.
