Lately since I am rebuilding my life I do not buy many books. Because I do not know in which country, city end up living.
But sometimes reaches my hands one of those books that I find interesting enough to buy. Although then have to donate it to a library, which is always a good idea.
So I buy it, because I know what awaits me inside deserves.
The devotion of suspect x is one of those books. After reading the summary I realized it was worth buying. And he was right.
The devotion of suspect x is one of those books that you can not stop reading once you start. It keeps you alert at all times so you do not miss any details. The story is created from an everyday situation, so don’t expect all the events that happen to the characters.
It is certainly one of the books that will come in my library, when I have a fixed residence.
