At a loss to understand why so many 5*
on 9 March 2012
Having spent many years as a police officer in the area in which this book is set, I eagerly anticipated reading this book, especially after so many positive reviews.
I was extremely disappointed, and gave up less than half way through. The plot does not compel one to read further, the characters are one dimensional, and I've heard more intelligent dialogue when I've accidentally tuned into the Jeremy Kyle show.
Additionally, the author's poor grammar coupled with poor editing - liberal misplaced apostrophes etc.- make this a tedious, frustrating read.
I won't bother again. I cannot understand why there are so many positive reviews, perhaps it's just me.
