Also symbolism because theirs many symbol made by the author to have hint in order to solved the cases. 6 . not only that. their apart that the author used flashback in order to recall the tragedy before.) Interpretation In this book you can learn a lot from the main character and also the supportive character because all of them have a good answer every question come to their mind. We’re all known that being a investigator is not a easily work for individuality. because there are so many step you had to do like seeking and searching information.
