I'm torn between 2.5 and 3 stars. The mystery was well developed and interesting, but I hated the main character, Thora. What a childish, immature, stupid woman. I understand that not all MC can be super smart but she is so stupid it makes you want to hit her. Her 6-year-old daughter tells her that her 16-year-old brother spends his afternoons "jumping on the bed and making strange noises" and Thora can't imagine what he could be doing?? Come on. And don't get me started with how she refers to her secretary because she is fat. Granted, the secretary is a terrible one but all Thora says about her are mean things about her weight. It was offensive and unnecesary. Horrible, horrible main character. But as I said, the mystery was an interesting one and that kept me reading, so that's why I'm torn about the rating. I don't know if I'll continue with the series yet. I think I need some time away from Thora before I decide.
