The book starts with a series of chapters which each introduce a character. This is followed by the continuing story of each one although many of the characters interact and their relationships get a bit complicated. There's Jenny who works with Judith the IT bod and who is friends with Rachel and yearns after Hal her ex-boyfriend who knows Haydn the journalist who liaises with Mike the useless cop who interviews James the dodgy doc whose wife Vanessa has gone missing.
In the background, and creating havoc, is Hagar who is on a mission, and a bloody one at that.
Very entertaining and gripping, this is an excellent first novel, and I'm keen to read the sequel and find out what happens to the unsuspecting Hal.
Regardless of whether you're into computers or not, it works well as a dark, psycho style thriller (I agree there are some slight similarities to James Patterson, but I think Mr Lewis has a style of his own)
Additionally, there is an element of romance & some good social/political satire. Plus a couple of good twists towards the end.
All in all, an entertaining read, looking forward to the next one...

At first as each character was developed, I found it a little hard to follow, and checked back a few times to make sure I had the correct person, but as I read on I couldn't put the book down. Whilst I couldn't wait to see what happened next I was really sorry when I got to the end! For me, that's the sign of a good book. The author has also left a definite opening for the next edition and I sincerely hope he's already working on it - or already completed it.
Well worth reading - without question.
As an ex-pat of Pontypridd (living in Australia for the past 20+ years) I also enjoyed the journeys through the South Wales Valleys which gave me a definite sense of 'Hiraeth' at times.
Whilst I personally know the author as we went to school together, this has not coloured my critique of the book. Well done Dave - I can't wait to read your next one.
