I liked Very Bad People. It was kinda of slow burn mystery, that I enjoyed. A lot of guessing games on who to trust or not. It had some nice twists towards the end. I do liked Kit Frick mystery books and looking forward to more of her reads. This book was a very quick read and is hard to put down until you get answers. Looking for a good mystery, then check out Very Bad People.
