This made me feel a lot calmer because it is what policemen say on television and in films.

recommend

I RECOMMEND this book very much because it is filled with excitement and mystery. This is a book that I would strongly recommend to everyone – even if you aren’t a fan of mystery. It is so intriguing. You are put in the eyes of an investigator and everything seems so real!
