fantastic read, you won't regret it
on 24 February 2012
This was a very cleverly crafted crime thriller with a difference, absolutely gripping from start to finish. After a cycling accident, Danny is lurched into an alternative reality - and finds himself living his "other" life, where he is not a successful journalist with the hot girlfriend, but a bit of a loser really! Friends and colleagues are here in his new life, but everything is just not right about them, not to mention the fact that he has a grotty flat instead of the nice home he had built with his girlfriend.
Full of colourful, some larger than life, characters who you came to know and love, as the story progresses with Danny realising by "piecing"both of his lives together that he is the only person who can help solve a series of grizzly murders.
The story is brought to a fast paced, gripping climax which was satisfying but still managed to leave you wanting more and I felt a little sad at the end of the book when it was time to leave Danny behind. If you enjoyed Iain Banks' The Bridge then you would probably like this read.
