This was a different type of mystery/suspense novel, but one that I enjoyed. Diamond writes with a unique style that comforts you in one moment while shaking you in the next. What I enjoyed most was the fact that I didn’t know what was going to happen next. He kept me guessing, and the ending was another nice surprise. I gave it 4.5 stars and recommend this for anyone who likes suspense books with a bit of grit.
There was so much that I disliked about this book, but where to start? While there were some interesting aspects and plot lines in the novel, most of it was tiresome and annoying. Hawkins switches amongst her characters too often and fails to connect like she should with any of them. This felt like a story that could have been great, but instead it tried to do to much, and didn’t do anything well. I give it two stars because there were interesting moments and it was not entirely bad.
