I was intrigued by the author's style, which I found very interesting. With the possible exception of a memorable action sequence (unspecified, in order to avoid a spoiler) I'd say that O'Kane uses quite a slow pace throughout. The build-up of tension and suspense might possibly be too subtle for some tastes, but I felt that O'Kane more than adequately compensated for this by using a series of twists and turns that generally worked well and kept the storyline sharp. The complex plot of this story must have taken an enormous amount of research and planning, and O'Kane could probably have written several books on the strength of her outlining for this work alone.
The writing of this novel must have involved an enormous amount of hard work. The book crosses over several genres and will appeal to a wide readership in a variety of settings. It could be good for holiday reading and at the same time it's a substantial book that'll sit comfortably on the bedside table and hold the occasional reader's thoughts and interest on an ongoing basis.
And I defy anyone to reach The End without a considerable sense of surprise.
I did guess who it was, but it wasn't long before the end and it wasn't exactly like I thought it would be.
This book is the start of a series that has great potential and I can't wait for book two, especially after the very last sentence.
This one is up there.
Hope she writes some more.
It was a great change for the main character to be a Dr, rather than the norm - detective-.
Zoe Moreland, is a GP she has recently moved to a village in the Borders region of Scotland, hoping for a fresh start and a quiet life. But Unfortunately for her, that's not what she gets! Early one morning while out walking her dog, Zoe finds a body in the remains of the previous nights bonfire, But Zoe doesn't want to get involved, and is reluctant to report it. But she does, and then things start to move, village gossip, police questions and people not being what they seem to be helps this story progress, with its twists and turns it certainly makes you want to keep reading.
I really did like some of the other characters in this book, and especially Kate, Zoe's friend. I think this could be a life long friendship made. Zoe seems to be quite a private person only really opening up to Kate. Which is where you begin to get a proper look into Zoe's past.
I really do think this could be the start of a fantastic series of books, and look forward to reading more.
