5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly intelligent thriller, very gripping, 9 May 2010
This review is from: No Escape (Paperback)
The number of thriller plots is inevitably pretty small yet Cooper manages to make the genre feel fresh and unpredictable in this book. A forensic psychologist, Karen comes to the Isle of Wight to research a psychopath who killed a family some years ago. But, once there, she is brought to question everything she has been told about both him and the crime he is supposed to have committed...

The characterisation is well done here, with Karen being both tough and vulnerable without descending to too much cliché. Her relationships with the men in her life add a welcome richness to the story: her mentor at the university, her newish boyfriend, the attractive macho DCI (who, thank heavens, isn't an alcoholic, a melancholic, divorced or otherwise traumatised...), the criminal himself.

This won't change your world but is a great escapist read that is clever and gripping.
