Read the book in less than a day! I loved the characters especially the heroin and rooted for her throughout the book. Can't wait to see what happens next.

The main character reminded me a little bit of the the heroin in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in that she's flawed but follows her own sense of morals.
