Sadly, the plot is nonsensical, the characterisation non-existent and the suspense almost completely lacking. The book failed to engage me and I must confess to having got bored halfway through, so much so that I put the book to one side for two or three days whilst I convinced myself to try to finish it as it might improve. It didn’t.
It’s a shame as somewhere in here is a decent thriller trying to get out. Unfortunately it doesn’t manage to do so. Disappointing.
Years ago, the company I worked for a multi-billion US-owned corporation which was hired to digitise all physical records of this museum. That project has long since be completed and all information is safely stored away from the museum. Therefore, burning down the museum and murdering survivors of the Holocaust is utterly pointless.
It's a bit like when I was getting so fed up with watching Les Mis on TV as it just seemed to be about Jean Val-Jean being 'beaten-up' every time. And he was a good guy! I literally walked away from it a couple of times until my partner encouraged me to see the last episode where the Inspector finally realises he has been hounding an innocent man his entire career. I don't find it entertaining seeing innocent people suffer. I'm giving To Kill the Truth a Two as the writing itself is good but the plot itself - to me, is unbalanced.
