One attendant is interviewed, the other is done in more or less a sentence or two, and none of the cops make mention of or ask about the whereabouts of the groom that was supposed to be there, too, until more than a day later, when normal procedure would have been to drop everything and immediately find out where this guy waiting to be interviewed went. A statement is made that all of the lodges on the property had been searched, but then you are dumped into a group approaching one to search it, and later find out there were people in one of more of these "searched" lodges, at the time of the supposed searches. Gives you the impression these cops are really spacey and more focused on poking fun at each other than on the investigation. Police believe a man found hanging from a doorknob with his hands tied behind his back is a suicide, no question at all??? So did he tie his own hands behind his back, then somehow get the ligature around his neck and the doorknob, or did he put the ligature around his neck and hang himself first, then tie his hands behind his back?? Makes no sense, either way is impossible. This often reads like two different stories, written in haste and smashed together, or something written by several different authors and merged. Motive is weak and the dialogue between main characters is very unrealistic, unprofessional and often seems pre-teenish with much of the conversation between the main officers consisting of them more or less accusing each other of having the hots for every other person encountered or questioned. There is not really any suspense, any mystery is lost, but there is a lot of confusion. Badly in need of a good editor or a major rewrite. Don't bother...am really glad I did not buy the subsequent titles in this series.

There were plenty of twists in the plot of this novel. Very easy to read by a new author in my reading collection. Highly recommended to fans of Ian Rankin and Lee Child.
