Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Englishman Terry moves to San Francisco to start a new life with his new wife, Sarah, a woman he hardly knows following a whirlwind romance. But Sarah is not at the airport to meet him and their new house is empty, abandoned.
So far so interesting. Except that it isn't. Terry doesn't really come to life (and how can you have a hero called Terry?) and the other characters are no better: paper-thin ciphers, moving via uninspired prose through a moderately engaging plot which, nevertheless, signposts many of its developments.
That said, it's a page-turner and if that's all you want from a thriller than you may well enjoy it. The best thing about it is the denouement, which throws up some surprises as well as one heavily foreshadowed event.
