My 2021 Halloween read was a colossal blunder. I have never been a fan of murder mystery series books. I usually find them predictable. But, I still had not read this year’s spooky story. As a result, I started this book on October 31st because the setting revolves around a Dracula escape room at a Goth festival near Halloween. I have enjoyed the suspense in other escape room novels. This isn’t one of them. The plot was fine, but the characters were one-dimensional, and the writing was flaccid and clumsy. Plus, it irritated me that the detective had to explain his thoughts throughout the novel as the murder did in the ending.
I received this Advance Review Copy (ARC) novel from the publisher at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
