I enjoyed the story, for the most part it was a page turner for me, just a few things
bothered me: Too much information at times, about what a room looks like, way too many details,
or what it used to look like before they re-decorated it.
It gave details of 2 different dreams the women had, which could have been left out.
There was several other things I consider TMI in a book, it just makes the book so long for
no good reason, and makes me lose interest or makes me want to start flipping pages to get past it.
It has some really short chapters, so it contains like over 60 chapters, but most are super short.
The good things were it keeps your interest, has twists you will not expect. And it takes you step by step
through the case as these 2 women detectives try to find a killer, more and more they dislike the women
who was killed because she was very evil, she destroyed many peoples lives.
No Details of Sex, it does mention sex many times but in very good taste, it never details anything.
It has little to NO typos.
I already recommended it to 2 people who I know love a good mystery... so I recommend it to you also.
really. Victoria, the murder victim, suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder (hence the book’s title), so was she or her illness responsible for her despicable behavior? Never mind. The author never asks this interesting question or even bothers to explore the illness beyond merely mentioning it.
The bulk of his book consists of two plucky female detectives conducting interviews of the multiple suspects which continues chapter after chapter after chapter. If you ever had any doubts that police work is tedious, this book will dispel them.
Still, there are a few surprises along the way before the author serves up an underwhelming ending. And he did write a few lines which made me smile:
“He rubbed his scalp as though on a vermin search-and-destroy mission.”
“You couldn’t be cool in the center of an Arctic ice storm.”
“The guy was so incompetent, he could screw up a wet dream.”
“You people couldn’t solve a case if the murderer confessed to the crime.”
“We got a dead woman who made Damien in The Omen look like Billy Graham.”
He tries to use Spanish in the book, but is so ignorant of the language that he omits the tildes in "señor", "señora", and "señorita". He also misses the very important distinctions between "sí" (yes) and "si" (if); and "está" (it is) and "esta" (this). If you're going to use a foreign language, you should at least try not to embarrass yourself.
Oh, and there's no such word as "your's".
I was actually past all this when, after damning evidence has exposed a killer, the author introduces a plot hole that one could drive a truck through.
All in all, it went from an acceptable, though badly-edited (see how hyphens are used?), book to a really sloppy piece of work. I wouldn't recommend it.

The two detectives are truly amazing.
