This is an engaging read from Jacqui Rose. Suspense, intrigue and character interaction flow throughout the narrative. The plot line is cleverly established without any obvious giveaways. An enjoyable read.
The beginning of the story had me gripped and had me thinking that the story was going to stay within the era, but then it leapt forward up to the present day and this is where I started to get a little bored.
I found some of the story a bit "twee" at times, and to be totally honest I got fed up with reading how many of the characters were crying at any given time. It seemed that in every few pages, and in most chapters, someone had some tears forming, falling or they were on the verge of!
Its not like me as I love a good sob story ( which this book isn't) but this got on my nerves as It happened countless times. Sorry to be a little negative but I only wanted this review to be honest.
The main villain of the book came across as some kind of surreal superhuman too, so in all I didn' enjoy it as much as all the other books.
The story moves forward to present day London where Patrick is not only fighting the demons from his past, but also trying to protect his loved ones as they attempt to survive in the heart of gangster land.
A compelling read which in my opinion is this author's best novel to date.
But for some reason, this one didn't get me like all the others right from the start, I found myself wondering at one point weather to carry on or not, but I did and i'm glad i stuck with it, I am unsure why i felt this way, maybe it was coming out of one book right into another.
The start of the book goes back in time, where we get the build up to the story and how things happened and why.
We are introduced to the characters and I think it's safe to say from early on you do develop the love for some and the hate for others. I always think if you can feel anything towards the characters in a book then the author has done their job and got you involved.
We start off with the younger characters in Ireland. and soon move on to them in the present day in London. How their lives started and how they have changed is fantastically put together.
As I said i am glad i continued to read this, and things did improve and I found myself getting into the book and story, more so when it arrived back to present time.
Then I found i didn't want to put the book down. In true Jacqui Rose style the book really took off. And I began to get really involved, really engrossed. I ended up thoroughly enjoying it.
