4.0 out of 5 stars Mad Men Bad Men, the stuff of nightmares, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tell-Tale (Paperback)
Until half way through it's hard to keep track of the various people we are introduced to. The prologue launches the reader into a taste of tantalising terror and then leaves you floundering on the bank. There's a lot to take in. It felt a bit chaotic and tricky to get to grips with. Lots of seeing things from other sides, other times. Sam Hayes loves to tease.

I spent an uncomfortable half hour in the dentist's chair with just the thoughts of this story to distract me. I kept worrying away at the plot trying to second guess who was who and why. It certainly passed the time!

This is a story that draws you back to it, eager to read some more and find out what's what. There are clues and it takes a bright eye to spot them, however a feeling of satisfaction when you are proved right. There's stuff to learn about, stuff to be upset about and stuff that does happen and really you don't want to know about.

This is not a book club discussion, it's a review, so no spoilers. I would just that say if you like excitement and don't get too irritated by unlikely co incidences, are open to the wildest of scenarios, well then, yes it's a thumping good read.
