This was a great story of suspense. It wasn't until the very end of the book that I realised who the real culprit was and even then it was only because the author revealed it. The author did an excellent job of not having a typical ending and wanting me to keep reading to the end and to figure out what happened. (It kept me up late many nights as I was reading!)
