This story took a bit for me to get into with the changing POVs and non-linear narration. However it was interesting to try and predict how the backstories of characters would intersect.
I was frustrated that it took till almost 90% of the book for us to find out who died, but looking back it was the right choice because we knew almost everyone's motivations for wanting him dead, so there wasn't actually much story left to explain
