3.0 out of 5 stars The jury's out for me., 9 Oct 2008
This review is from: Darkhouse (Paperback)
I was rather looking forward to reading this book. I was ultimately disappointed.

The storyline is a good one and the killer is, at best, most unpleasant.

But, the characters are poorly created and developed. Joe Lucchesi has a wimp of son, he, himself, is an unlikeable family man and his wife doesn't seem to know much about anything, yet, she's French, she's married an American, she's working in Ireland, so what went wrong?

The dialogue, too is very hit and miss. I really can't believe the son talks as he does. The only characters with any buzz are the killers and I'd really hoped they'd meet out their own view of this book at the end. Well, now we must wait for 'The Caller' which I hope is a darn site better than this book.
