Shocking ..... the writing, not the story!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Surrogate (Brennan and Esposito) (Paperback)
As other reviewers have said a potentially interesting storyline but ruined by the pages upon pages of dreadful prose, lack of character development and dubious plot and outcomes. The police procedurals were especially bad, as if the author had absolutely no idea of what might or might not happen as part of an investigation. It was all 'he said, no, she said' stuff. The scences about Hester struggling to come to terms with the newborns were actually pretty well done though. As an avid reader of all manner of crime fiction (I am not easily shocked) I was very disappointed with this book, it falls way short of the real pros - Mo Hayder, Peter James, Tess Gerritson to name a few.
