Good....But not her best!
on 13 July 2012
I am a massive Karin Slaughter fan, but this was not her usual thrilling read! In fact for the first time ever i was well over half way through before i started to enjoy reading it! It was long winded in places and lacked the usual crime thriller feel. The book is written in two time periods, more focusing on 1975 era rather then present day with Will and Sara. The death of Wills father left me a little flat, it was almost dealt with like it was unimportant, and the relationship between Will and Amanda wasnt explored in enough detail, when through the book you felt like it was building up to something that never came!
Yes the chemistry between the two main characters was exciting as always a little sparce in this book, and we needed the background to Will to understand him more, but still i just didnt feel the tension like with her other books. However it did finish on a cliff hanger so i have high hopes for the next installment!!!
