I read this book while on holiday and for the most part it was a good `round-the-pool read. There were a few typos and grammatical errors but funnily enough these were the first few pages and settled down after that.

The general story is good and moves along at a swift pace. There's nothing original in it and you'll see each twist coming a mile off but that's OK because you'll be having a good time getting there.

One thing the author did was to have children as characters that weren't annoying and that's very rare. The rest of the characters are good enough, fleshed out enough to care about them (I especially liked the old couple next door - no spoliers!) although the main antagonist is a little 2D.

The main thing that bugged me was the references to the previous book. There wasn't quite enough for a new reader to grasp what had gone on before. You get the gist but a little more exposition would have been welcome.

Kindle formatting: generally good although there was a strange thing where the opening " was a little bigger than the closing " when people are speaking. It's odd and you stop noticing after awhile.

All in all, for 86p you'll have a good read.

Disclaimer: I got this book free in exchange for a review. I have tried to be honest in that review.
