Cheap thriller without the thrills,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cairo Diary (Paperback)
I'm all for a rattling page-turner and don't mind sacrificing some plausibility for a galloping plot but come on - how did this get published, let alone a place on a recent 'Top Ten Thrillers' list? The characters have no personality, the plot has no coherence and the 'Cairo Diary' isn't even a diary, being written in the third person instead of the first.
If, as the blurb claims, Chattam is 'one of the best contemporary thriller authors', God help the Frogs...
