I have to say that this is one that I definitely had a hard time sticking with.
The story is set in the 1930's (I think). I had a dificult time staying with the actual storyline, but I think that was the goal of the author. If it was (his goal), then he did a great job weaving a tall tale.
This was a mix between mind-bender mystery and horror. So if you like that sort of story then this one will be a good one for you.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Penguin Group USA for an ARC.
