The book is poorly researched, the characters one dimensional, the language Victorian in places (asylums??? When was the last time that you heard a psychiatric hospital referred to as an asylum????) and the editing lazy. The story line maybe could have lifted the book above mediocre if not for such fatal flaws, but as you are asked to suspend belief early on in the book when one of the main characters gets discharged from an 'asylum' overnight, with no medical follow up, it's unlikely!
My recommendation is to avoid like the plague - it's a book that should never have been written.
As they hunt a psychopathic killer, Randall looks for redemption, finds love; and Molly searches for love, but finds terror.
The writer also made Avril Smart out to be an ugly ogre but no mention of this description of her when she appeared in Solomons Key. I also take issue with the rape scene - it probably was'nt necessary at all. We could have used our imaginations or it could have had less dialogue. I don't need to have a street by street journey every time one of the characters is out and about either - its just words filling a page and unless you are very familiar with Greater London, it means nothing.
All in all, had this book cost me several pounds I would have been very annoyed and felt cheated but, for the money, all the Tim Ellis books give fantastic value for money and are well worth a read.

Really hope there is a follow up book after that ending. This was one of those "can't put down" books for me. Look forward to reading more of this authors books.Published 14 months ago by Lil me

Really enjoyed this (I like this author anyway), this is slightly different to normal detective mysteries as one is outside of the law and makes it a bit more interesting. Read morePublished on 6 July 2014 by Hols969
This was the first time I had looked at this author, and I am so glad, as all the rest of the books by him I have read have been brilliant, they are "keep you guessing"... Read morePublished on 20 Jan. 2014 by Judithcarrot
