Plot: Appearing slow-moving at first, the plot is, however, realistically paced. The story is well-plotted; never once does anything seem out of place.
Very well written, the prose is immersive, engaging, and emotion-provoking.
Originality: Set amidst both a true and a fictitious world, the novel divulges something unique. The premise for the murder, and all the intertwined stories in between, do not seem like an echo of any other mystery/thriller novel readers have encountered before.
Character Development: The author has presented the characters in such a way that readers cannot help but become attached to them and their stories. The characters evolve over the course of the novel to better understand themselves, and deal with their emotions.
