Well, I'm close to being done with the book, and I couldn't resist reading this--spoiler or not! Actually I've had a list of several possible culprits--and George was on it.

I usually figure out the culprit early on, but this one took me by surprise. I was leaning towards Mr. Sneekers or the lawyer's boyfriend.

I can't seem to figure out the culprit early on, so i couldn't resist to read the spoilers around here. I want to find out why finding a culprit in the book is not that easy.

I was shocked. I knew it would be one of the characters that either Jeremy or his mum knew but never expected George. I didn't think it would be anyone that worked at the hospital after Darwin's co-worker murder had been seen as too close and tying. Also no one at the hospital mentioned her death even though she worked there which was odd.

I do like being surprised by plot twists in book though so was not disappointed :)
The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon

That's a really good point - I was surprised that no one spoke of her death either...In truth it seems kind of heartless that no one did. I understand confidentiality but it seems like no one was shocked or that they were too busy to even acknowledge the fact that she died.

I suspected but I was never too sure. I should have paid more attention to the little details! I was shocked but at the same time, I kind of expected it. Read the book again and almost knocked my head on the wall after catching all the hints.

I can honestly say I did not see it coming at all. I thought at first it was Dr. Sneeker or maybe Rex. I was so blindsided it made me angry that I didn't see it sooner. I kept thinking with his constant showers wouldn't his skin be dry? He didn't mention a lotion routine... I kept thinking he would be the guy with the dry hands...

For the longest time, I thought that Darwin was Jonathon. I was completely sure up until the reveal. In fact, I'd ruled George out when it was said that he'd decided to stay home with GI Dick while everyone else was filming the Dr John show. The identity reveal took me by surprise.
