Like all the Goddard novels I've read, this had an intricate plot, with surprising twists. And he does write well. My one criticism would be that while it's all written in the first person it's not always clear that out of the several characters in the book, it's not always clear which one is speaki9ng at the time! But it was still a good read!

It is the first book I have read by Robert Goddard and certainly not the last.The research and details so accurate it's uncanny finding the book hard to put down, a fascinating tale. Superb. Thank you regards, John Hayes.

I don't normally spend over a £1 for e books but this one was recommended by a friend. Was it a good read? - yes. Was it worth the money? - debatable. It is very well written though and the story does grip you in places.

This is Goddard's best book and I have read most. The plot is fiendishly clever, the atmosphere authentic and the characters real and convincing. Above all, it is so well written and un-put-downable. Yet what is its genre? Is it a thriller, a mystery or a romance? It is all and so much more. Wonderful book!

Not my kind of book at all. Cheesy writing and I felt it to be in the category of 'woman's literature'. I am a woman but prefer more robust writing. I didn't get more than a third of the way through (A book club choice).

Well, I finally finished it, and may I just say how much I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were so many twists and turns I didn't think I would be able to keep up, but I did, and just when I thought I had the next one sussed out, bang!, another unexpected twist.
I would never have thought twice about reading this book before, (it was the book of the month in a reading group I am a member of) but now I think I may go and buy another Robert Goddard. It may be possible that this book has made a Robert Goddard addict out of me!
The story was so well constructed, beautifully written, and highly involving with the use of the many different 1st person narratives, the characters were engrossing, loathsome and pitiful. i felt as though I was truly a part of teh unfolding story. I finished it in just 4 sittings.
It was highly reminiscent of an Agatha Christie, and can imagine sitting enthralled watching a dramatisation of it.
Hope everyone enjoys it as much as me!
