Unquestionably one of the worst books i ever read,
This review is from: London Falling (James Quill 1) (Paperback)
I struggled through this book assuming there would be some kind of clever twist or denouement at the end. The writing is terrible, the cop cliches are irritating, the only remotely well developed character is Lisa Ross, the entire premise of the story is absurd. To illustrate how bad the book is I have reopened it at a completely random page and highlighted a typically unintelligble/cliche paragraph!
"The stairs, right in front of her, were particularly challenging. It was as if you could see underneath the stairwell and yet up it at the same time. The up-and-and down pattern of the stairs seemed to be overlaid on the surface of your eyes. But it was still contained within a discrete space. It was like a Picasso painting of a stairway."
The whole book is written like this!

That quote makes perfect sense... if you've understood what's happened leading up to it.
