well lets start with the odd/bad bits...yes its stretched and your imagination needs to pull a bit sometimes on what a nearly birthing woman can do and how much pain a human body can withstand.... BUT this is a work of fiction.... I hope! we are not reading a real crime story! McGlade had me giggling, Herb I wanted to cuddle... fully understood JD and wish I was a strong as she is.... luckily I have a great man like Phinn who loves me otherwise I would have jealous! It really does tie up some loose ends and you do think you have worked it all out, then it bites you in the rump again with another weird twist.... as for the unbelievable things that ppl do to each other... unfortunately this could be true... watch Hotel Rwanda or read about the slave trade....(just 2 that stick out in my mind). great thriller and horror all in one.... makes me want to read by the authors and the characters.... would recommend highly!
