The cover of the book was eye-catching and slightly hints to the gruesome details inside. There is no question that this book has a lot to it. The shifting perspectives with what seems like a new person each chapter definitely keep me entertained. Also, the mystery and suspense of what really happened at the boarding house and who really did it is intriguing enough to keep me reading. I really liked how it gave you a little information from each person but not enough to give you the full picture right off the bat. The reader learns as they read on. I'm not normally one for the horror or dark/murder drama genre, but I would read this book for sure.
