I don't often give up on a book ploughing on in the hope of finding some redeeming feature.
This had none.
I had to start a new collection on my Kindle "unreadable" - this still only has one entry!

This is one of the poorest excuses for a novel I've ever read. I say 'read': I didn't finish it. I simply couldn't grit my teeth hard enough to get through it.

Utter and total piffle - written by a semi-literate, as far as I could make out.

For example:
'Baker Street was a busy place, full of tourists as well as people who either lived there or were just passing through'. Tourists lie somewhere between 'living' somewhere and 'passing through' presumably? Do they squat?
'From the outside the forecourt beer garden was large in capacity, having a big seating area, as well as plenty of standing room'. Oh, well, that's cleared it up; I thought a beer GARDEN would be assessed on its cubic air space, rather than standing and sitting room. I suppose if one assessed from the 'inside' rather than the 'outside', it might?
'For reasons only known to her, she felt insecure. It may be because she lost her father at a very young age'. Are you biting your fist with irritation yet? No? Well, buy this book - it's a cheap manicure.

Seriously - save yourself the 99p and buy a KitKat. At least that is a fleeting pleasure.

I am not a sophisticated reader with knowledge of character development or plot lines but even I can tell that this is a very poor effort. Hardly any of it was credible; alibis that would never stand up, damning evidence left lying around in the home of the perpetrator, assuming that anything on the internet is anonymous, believing that buildings are demolished without first checking for occupants are just some of the problems I have with the story. Then there's the all-too-easy way in which he was caught and the lame ending. Don't buy this book or the sequel if it ever gets off the ground.

This book appears to have been written by a child, I can't believe I even bothered to finish it. Boring, pointless and totally unbelievable...can honestly say it's one of the worst books i've ever read. Avoid at all costs.

The worst book I have read in a long time. Grammatically appalling, and liberally peppered with unnecessary swear words. The author needs to extend his vocabulary in order to eradicate some of these expletives in his next attempt, which I will not be reading.

I hate leaving negative reviews, but having bought this book before learning what a good idea it is to read reviews, I have to say I wish I had. The first thing that hit me was the childish way in which it is written, like a junior school child's first attempt at an essay. The prose is terribly immature, the constant descriptions of every action Greg made, every little detail, soon made reading this 'novel' unpleasant and annoying. Things like this, 'as it was Saturday, he went into the bathroom and had a shower'. So he only showered on Saturdays? And 'as he sat down on his leather setee, his mobile phone bleeped. He picked up his mobile phone.' Isn't his action here obvious.

I fought, I thought, bravely on, awaiting the demise of Brian, but unfortunately the lack of editing and boring prose led me to give up at 17%. With over 500 books on my kindle, I didn't feel inclined to waste any more time on this 'novel'.

I always read reviews now before choosing a book. I still might give it a go, but it's useful to have other's reviews as a guide, so my advice is read them.

From the reviews I read before buying this book it seemed that people either love it or hate it and, having decided to give S.J. Wardell the benefit of the doubt I find myself in the second category.

The knowledge of police practice and procedure is sadly lacking. At one point it is suggested that Chief Inspector Jasper Ward is a very senior figure in New Scotland Yard while in reality there are many more senior ranks who would get involved in the unlikely event that they wanted to re-hire an officer who has resigned. The main police investigator Terry Bane is recalled from retirement to solve the case but in fact does nothing of the kind, the case is solved by a witness coming forward.

The villain is supposed to be very clever but in fact makes very basic mistakes as does the author with his timeline.

The story does just not hang together in my view.

Format: Paperback
When I started this book I thought it was a childs novel. The grammar was shocking, it was as if it had been written by a foreigner in English. The basic story was probably okay but the book was just so badly written I was getting more and more annoyed as I struggled through it. I have no idea how anyone could possibly have judged this book fit to be published. Really really disappointed. Every quote had an explanation after it. Complete rubbish.
