Review by Condorena
The story was well told but I could not get into the subject matter. By that I mean it is about a detective returning from an 8 month suspicion after having been framed for a rape probably by people in law enforcement. He does nothing while on suspension and then somebody keeps trying to murder him while he is trying to polish up his reputation by solving a murder case.<br/><br/>The main protagonist as a victim that no one beliefs produces an anxiety that make one want to read something else.
