The plot and characters of this book are great. I love how I got to see characters that I already knew and get to delve even deeper into them now that they are the main characters. The interactions were realistic, the plot was a little dramatic, but so are a lot of thrillers or mysteries. I was a little worried that there was enough substance from the first book to create a second, and it did push it a little, but it wasn't too bad. I think something was missing from it though because I wasn't hooked. This book was okay, I would give it a 2/5.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is really interested in mystery or someone who really liked the previous book.
