I came to this via "The Burning Man" which was a Kindle deal of the day and I certainly wouldn't have wanted to pay more for it. This is much the better book, though still in need of some brisk editing in places. I know all fictional detectives have troubled backgrounds - it's obligatory, but in view of the list of calamities visited on our hero, my advice to him would be never, ever to buy a duck - it would sink! Forget Rebus, this reads more like Columbo or Murder She Wrote. It's a bit too cute for my usual taste, but to see me through a ferocious head cold, it was just what I needed.

I read the reviews for this book and considered not reading it, the mythological references put me off. But having an interest in multiple personality made me persevere and read it.

Jolly glad I did. Barring the first bit "myth central" which put me off totally, the rest of the book was well written, gripping, easy to follow and enjoyable. I didn't find the Greek characters difficult to deal with, the fact that they're named after mythological characters made no difference once I had a grasp on their personality.

I enjoyed the opening chapters but found that the pace became too slow as the story progressed. There was too much involving Greek mythology and the characters apart from Cheever never came alive for me. The final revelations were not really much of a surprise except the exact circumstances of Katies death. The descriptive parts regarding the San Diego location were well written but as a whole I wouldn't recommend the book unless you are into Greek Greek myths and the study of multiple personality disorder.

43 chapters of multiple personalities in a young woman based on Greek mythology.I found it hard to get interested in at the beginning ,but I stayed with it and it wasn't as I thought.

Completely implausible plot and unrealistic characters. OK if you like psychological thrillers but not for me. I'll stick to Michael Connelly in future

Novel twist and focus on the 'Greek Myth' but some descriptions lack pace with a somewhat cumbersome detectives enquiry. Not really my style overall.

This is the first time I've attempted to review a book before finishing it but this book is special.

I realised that it was special as soon as I read the first paragraph

"She thought of Chaos, and the original confusion, and felt as if she were a part of that tumult. Earth and sea and heaven and hell were mixed up, and everything inside of her was a whirligig. The Greek chorus was screaming in her head, all of them wanting out."

I may be mistaken but to me the language echoes Genesis and the resolution of order from chaos, but here there is nothing good, only the howling of demons and Gods in the body of a young woman.

For Helen is apparently a victim of dissociative identity disorder or multiple personality disorder. It seems that Greek goddesses live within her. We are told that "enthusiasm" originally meant being possessed by the Gods and such seems to be the fate of Helen, her voice and appearance change as the various goddesses control her yet at the same time she also has the personality of an artistic young woman and a young girl seeking her father. The various personalities are both ignorant of each other yet bound together as a family. Magic hovers within the surrounding darkness but this is not a book about magic, it's about a world in which the irrational can become reality - or maybe it's only appearance because the novel questions even the premise that Helen is really suffering from a mental disorder.

It sounds as though the book should be difficult and pretentious but it really isn't.

An unusual book, but I enjoyed it. The book is well written and an easy going read. Probably good to read on holiday or on the plane.
