At the urging of a fellow reader, I gave Bardugo another chance since I was told this book was nothing like her other novels.

Thumbs up to Bardugo for creating an atmospheric New Haven and Yale that oozed off the page and engulfed the reader.

Thumbs down on the pacing and fitting the pieces of the plot together.

In the end, it was a slog to finish the novel to find the reveal underwhelming and puzzling.There were definitely not a enough clues about a certain character's true nature.
