This review is from: Cries in the Dark (Kindle Edition)
I liked the concept, I liked the characters, and I liked the animals. The writing often felt awkward. Although most of the novel is set in Seattle, in one scene police officers set coffee and donuts on their car's bonnet, which suggests the author is not American, and perhaps explains some of the odd phrasing and sometimes stilted language. That doesn't explain the often abrupt scene changes and the sometimes bizarre occurrences that are seemingly unrelated to the plot. Ultimately the author weaves together every strange thread but still leaves us with a sudden ending that is less than satisfying. The book's redemption is in the thoughtful presentation of animal rights, not in the quality of the plotting.
