    Cozy

    As the book is written from the writers point of view, we dont get much of the detective's thoughts. Only when the writer ia interacting with Hawthorne, do we get the insights.If compared to Sherlock and Watson. The writer, Anthony, is a reluctant Watson who has been coerced, manipulated by Sherlock to write a book on his investigations. Their relation with each other improves as they spend more time together. The plot is quite interesting and even though there are signs, you wouldn't really identify the killer untill almost the end. I enjoyed reading it. I liked this first book of the series

    Mind-blowing

    The way the story moves equally in two storyline’s is captivating. I had made my guesses but could not guess the killer
