The Kramski Case by J.J. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It is difficult to praise the plot of this book without revealing spoilers but I will do my best. Firstly, I thought the introduction was far better than the conclusion. The intro had a sense of curiosity whereas the conclusion was not so much resolve as it was disbelief. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a cliffhanger but it raised a lot more of political questions that I liked.
This is one of the few descriptions that tell you who the killer is and you think the story is going to be predictable right. Wrong. The Kramski Case is anything but predictable and will leave you rethinking everything you understood about mystery and espionage stories.
Ward strings you along and you go. Like a puppet. The path he leads you on is twisted but it is also irresistible. Characters are well-developed, flawed and likeable. The POV does change at times but not in a distracting manner.
