This story immediately kicks off with a bang! Just by reading the first few pages I could tell this novel would be a page turner. And that statement rang true. This novel takes place in Paris, France which is another major bonus in my eyes. There is just something about the Parisian atmosphere that pairs wonderfully with this classic mystery novel.
The writing style is super easy to read, and the story is just as easy to follow. It is definitely not one of those novels that you have to try too hard to comprehend which makes it that much more enjoyable as a reader.
This is the first I've heard of this author, and I am definitely going to look into his other work. And can we talk about this cover!?! I mean come on, its wonderful!! I think anyone who has any interest in mystery novels at all should look into this book. Especially if you have been wanting to get into mysteries but don't know where to start, I think this novel would be great for you!
