The Dark Heart: A True Story of Greed, Murder, and an Unlikely Investigator Reviews
This was a medium length book that is very good. This murder is weird and the detection of it is brilliant.

Perhaps due to this being translated to English, or possibly just writing style, it wasn’t always the easiest story to follow with regard to characters and sequencing. But that said I enjoyed the story overall.
Didn’t finish - didn’t care for author’s writing style at all.
