Actual rating 3.5  I received this for review by NetGalley  I started this graphic novel about two months ago and never actually got into it properly, but yesterday, being the procrastinator that I am and having **** loads of reading to do for uni I decided it was the ideal time for a graphic novel. Now I am relatively new to the graphic novel genre but this was a fantastic second choice for one, and I would highly recommend it to those who are fans of murder mysteries such as those by Agatha Christie.  To begin with I didn't completely see where the author was going with his plot, it began rather abruptly with a conspiracy surrounding Steven's wife, who's name I currently cannot think of, even though it appeared from the beginning that she committed suicide. EVERYTHING points to her having committed suicide: the way she died, the note, the fact Steven (who turns out to be a relative scumbag in the relationship department) is cheating on her with several women. Her family however decided to hire a private investigator who follows Steven around as he attempts to carry on with his life.  I have to admit I did not see it ending the way it did. Tara (the main character's new girlfriend) had so many layers to her character; I initially really thought she was a character there for me to like; I in so many ways my romantic nature wanted the two to end happily ever after. But in the later sections of the 'novel' her past catches up with her and the reader is given drips of information which slowly lead to the conclusion of the novel; which is done in a very skilful way by the author through various flashbacks and time jumps.  Overall I really enjoyed this, and couldn't put it down towards the end, I actually refused to leave my room until I'd finished it, so its a good job its short or I would've missed my lecture. If you're looking for a quick one off read I completely recommend this; however I do not feel that I will be rereading this due to the fact I now know the ending and I think this spoils the dramatic nature of the book. So my tip for reading this would be to find out as little as possible before going into it.
