It’s a good book but once again I find the insertion of the second book in the middle very strange. It does make sense with the plot but the break in the main story is disconcerting and does make the story rather long and much harder to keep track of. I did enjoy the book though.
Spoiler somewhat get the vibe of anti-sex work sentiment and anti-bdsm for the author. The homophobia of the killer does not sit well with me, it feels quite contrived and forced.
