The first few chapters for me seemed to start well. Once downloaded, it nose dived for me, flipping from what was happening in the present to going back and reading letters written, which sounds odd but they didn't come across as letters, more a recall in the first person, however really disliked the letter part.
I guessed early on who did what, too many clues at the start, which spoiled it for me. It was very drawn out, doesn't seem like it is a thriller, just a recount of past events,
It isn't fast paced, griping, basic story line, husband dies, who has done it, but to me it was obvious.
I would highly recommend this book and indeed all others by this author.
Even the detective on the case has marital problems.
The only thing I did like was the conclusion/ending. Which was more fitting than the end of Kill Me Again.
I just hope the rest of the series is like Kill Me Again rather than this one.
The story itself was both fascinating and extremely horrific and was very well told from the point of view of each of the characters. I have to say the ending was a twist that I was not really expecting although I had my suspicions but those had been dismissed several times as the story unfurled.
I will certainly be reading the next in the series - Sleep Tight - which I have already purchased and I highly recommend this author if you are a fan of suspense and crime thrillers.
There are quite a few female suspects in this book and it is hard to figure out who did it. There are lots of twists that keep you gripped and make you wonder who is telling the truth. Abbott gives you snippets of information to try and help you figure it out but even by the end I was left there sat mesmerised at how someone can write something where you should have guessed who it was but because of her clever writing, didn't! I really enjoyed the ending of this one and it makes you think about what you would do in that situation - and there are a lot of different situations that I had to think about what I would do.
We are also introduced to Tom Douglas in this book and his DC Becky Robinson. I loved these two together they were a great pair! The story is written in third person and reading what each character is thinking and how their brain is working and how they depict other characters is very well developed.
