4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 24 Feb. 2014
I really enjoyed this. Well plotted and well written. I found myself identifying with the characters and caring what happened to them. But it was a pity the author didn't do some more careful research on her setting. She appears to think Toronto is in the United States, and that it's built on a river. In fact it's in Canada, on Lake Ontario. At one point she has her protagonists heading off to a suburb in ten youth of the city - which would put them in the lake. And she keeps referring to the 'state' whereas the Canadian term is 'province'; and using American terms like DA and 'detective'. If she plans to write more books about Eleanor Raven, which I hope she will, she needs to get these sorts of details right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Running out of gas?, 25 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't find this as satisfying as earlier Banks titles. Too didactic. At times it read like a manual on the forensics of fire, or police procedure and since most of this was done via the medium of reported conversation it felt rather unrealistic. People kept telling each other things they would already have known. And the plot, the characterisation and the procedure felt rather stitched together. Maybe the formula is getting tired.

It's an alarm clock. It wakes you up when you tell it to. It will wake you up to up to Mozart if you have any on your Kindle!
