Stretching credibility for the over 10's
on 1 March 2013
So, our 'hero' finds himself in dire straights and reconnects with a non bloodline family from whom he has become long detached and lost contact. They live in a remote area but, oddly, welcome him back to the fold with barely a query. His 'aunt' and his 'cousins' are an odd bunch but seem open and giving. He is offered employment in the used car business on a high salary that is just too good to be true. And, of course, it is. It would be wrong to reveal too much about the nature of the business and its sinister overtones. The denoument was disappointing: very rushed as if the author had lost interest and wanted to end the book. An easy read when travelling or relaxing in a hotel but it won't stretch the mind and ultimately leaves a feeling of empty incredulity.
