This review is from: Salvation of a Saint (Paperback)
I found this book very disappointing. I had no sympathy with any of the characters, the whole 'story' was not at all thrilling for me, there were no twists and it was very linear. If we had been told who committed the murder a little earlier than we had been (and I mean a little) it could easily have been an episode of Columbo, but without the excellent Columbo character. It got to the point where if I had to read the words coffee, water bottles and filter one more time I would be compelled to throw the book away. I never write book reviews (perhaps that is clear) but I feel cheated by the promise of: "Intricate and beguiling... if you like riddles inside enigmas...." (Guardian) and by being told that this extraordinary thriller will linger long in my memory (The Independent on Sunday). It may well do that, but for a different reason I think. The only positive is that I did read the book right to the end.
