*Tóm tắt : In my opinion, this is a really good book, which grips you from the beginning and on every page it becomes more and more interesting. The language is simple and easy to understand, and the reader doesn't know what's happening at all; in every chapter more secrets are revealed, but not all of them. It's just at the end when I understood the problem, the situation that was happening, and everything made sense. I can recommend this book to people who like short, exciting and suspenseful stories .
