    I read to the end to find out who was who. The problem I had was that I felt the English translation was a problem or that some times the characters were not right. I wouldn't seek out another of these books.

    The blurb on the back of this book says that the book "recalls Strangers on a Train" by Patricia Highsmith, but this one is even more convoluted.
