**I received a copy of this book from the author for review** 

I think going inside a detective's mind and helping them figure out the mystery is the best point a view a book could ever present! Eli and Ava, two very ingenious detectives, work together on the same case to find the answer to a string of murders. What the author did well in writing this book was definitely making the characters believable and their present situation. It's either Shay West had a very in-depth life in forensics science, or just has a very vivid imagination. And probably even, say, a background in the police department (wink, wink). The story was believable without being too unreal.

From the gestalt (just by looking at the cover!), I expected a very subtle and dark piece about murder, however I didn't quite get that. And because of that I feel like this book leaned more on the science of it rather than the story, which is totally fine, but I would've liked to see more development of the story and plot throughout.

It was pretty fantastic that this book just so happened to come with a twist! We are sent to kind of another dimension and the crime scene follows us there! It was unique and definitely a big step up from shows like Criminal Minds and CSI: Miami. Like all other homicidal mystery novels, we see a build in the intensity of the cases and the murders. In this story, they just got wilder and really much more a pain to solve. You could literally feel the sweat dripping off the detective's foreheads!!

After reading this book, I feel educated enough to apply for a job as a detective! It's kind of like sitting in the backseat of a real life crime scene, in which you're helping to solve. We're up close and personal to a real detective. If forensics science and mystery is something that appeals to you, this book is a close match and a true simulation to what it's really like!
