not quite as good as it promises
on 16 October 2000
whilst this book was enjoyable, it was not in my opinion as "riveting...chilling....engrossing" as the Kirkus Reviews quoted it to be on the cover. I felt at times it was rambling and unnecessarily confusing. The story could have been made more of. I felt that Suzies character was not really explored as well as it could have been, and you only felt like you got half the picture, especially when the author writes about when Suzie begain to act strangely. This was not explored particularly well, and i felt this let the book down. For the volume of the book i expected more substance, but was disappointed. However it is a passable read, and will while away some time. Unfortunatley it is not a real page turner, which is sad because the facts of the story could well be a page turner if told properly. Perhaps Anne Rule should have a stab at telling this tale!
