    Lightbulb What is the meaning of "flip to the last page" in this sentece?

    Hey guys, I was watching the second episode of the newly released TV series "izombie" and I faced lots of difficulties in understanding the meanings.

    Here is one of them:

    They are in a crime scene searching for evidence or something and the detective asks "Liv", who is a fake psychic zombie that eats brains and has some visions about the victims,:

    Is the crime scene inspiring, you know, any otherworldly communications or conjurings or what have you?

    Liv answers: Wow. You're really a flip to the last page of the book type guy, huh? You've been detecting for five minutes.

    Detective: Oh, I know who did it. It's the wife.


    I don't understand the meaning of underlined part. I really appreciate your helps.

    It refers to a person who is very impatient and doesn't want to wait to see how the book ends. He goes to back of the book to see how things worked out.

    In murder mysteries, the killer is only revealed at the very end of the book. If you go straight to the end of the book, you will get the answer.
