This book was written by Ed McBain. The main characters in it were part of a circus. Coincidentally, Jake and I are currently watching season 4 of American Horror Story, the theme of which is a carnival/freak show. It was a little confusing to be concentrating on two similar stories at once.
At any rate, all Ed McBain books are good and this one was no different. It ended with a cliffhanger, which is unfortunate, because I don’t read the books in order (the book was part of the Matthew Hope series). Who knows? Maybe I already read the next one in the series.
This always seems to happen, but I received the newest Stephen King book right after I started reading this one, so I’m looking forward to starting that one tonight.
My rating: 3.5/5
