I was unsure about this novel when I downloaded it as it was not following the pattern of this Authors usual writing but I should not have been concerned, without doubt this is by far the best novel I have read this year. I won't spoil any of the story line but suffice to say it kept me gripped from line one right up to the final line of the last page. As I got towards the end I was concerned that as it had been such a good read it would do as so many novels tend to and the end would be a rushed disappointing conclusion. However, it was gripping to the end and I could not fault it at all. If there was a 5 star plus it would go to this novel, hopefully it will hit the top of the lists and spur Miss Beevis on to write many more.
