Breathtaking!

From beginning to end this book kept me wanting more by the second. Anthony Horowitz makes it impossible to walk away from! The plot was flawless - so many unexpected twists - and the character's dialogue witty! The narration was spectacular.This is definitely one of my favourite reads; would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a book with an intelligently thought out, yet simplistic, plot. Amazing.
