This book starts off well and hints at various possible scenarios that go off in different directions. Two thirds of the way through though, the main female character really got on my nerves and the ending was a bit tepid for my taste.

This was really disappointing. It had a lot of the elements right for an intriguing story but it plodded very heavily and in the end was truly anti-climatic. I feel cheated of the hours I spent on this book. I had started to read another of hers a few weeks ago and had given up shortly into it because it was plodding and overwrought. Sorry, Lucy.
