Too slow and repetitive. 2 stars because I kept reading out of vague curiosity but after awhile I couldn't take all the filler. The heroine was really unappealing too. The plot was very Murder She Wrote - new characters entered the scene with giant neon billboard arrows blinking above their heads: "I AM THE RED HERRING." "I SEEM SHADY BUT AM ACTUALLY JUST A JERK." "I WAS SUPER SLUTTY IN COLLEGE SO DON'T TRUST ME (BUT I AM A RED HERRING TOO)!" And yes, "IT'S ME! I AM THE VILLAIN!"
