Some sentences made no sense. I read 'A burst of hallow hair coursed around her as she entered.' a dozen times and still have no idea what it means.
There are also continuity errors galore:
1/ In the first 7 chapters, Parker mentions 4 times the story is set in September. Then in Chapter 8, he rewinds time to early summer, but has the Browns playing a game on Sunday. A few chapters later we’re back to fall.
2/ In one chapter, Stacy is led into a locker room then a few paragraphs later walks into the same locker room.
3/ People suddenly appear 3 pages into a scene and just as quickly disappear. Austin, Stacy’s partner, does this several times.
4/ Stacy is discharged from the hospital early in the morning but a page later she talks about the late-night sky and a paragraph after that about street lights going off as the morning brightens.
5/ So many more that listing them all would take 20 pages.
This book is loaded with production errors – wrong words and punctuation goofs – as well.
There are no excuses for this many easily avoided and corrected errors. Didn’t anybody proofread or copyedit this book? Having read what Mr. Parker does for a living (teaching writing and literature), these mistakes are even more outrageous.
This story had the potential to be really good with a topical crime and interesting characters. But the slovenly writing killed it.
And Amazon continues its astounding ability to tell me how many pages are in a Kindle book but can't number the same pages in the damn book!
However, for me, the overall reading experience was greatly diminished by the poor proofreading. I am pretty sure that I agreed to provide a review after the book's July 2017 publication date and therefore the Kindle version I received should be what was actually published. If so, I feel for anyone who actually spent money on the book. There are numerous occasions where characters are referred to by the wrong name. The spelling of a minor character's name changes in the chapter in which he is introduced and in a later chapter there is a third spelling for this character's name. There are multiple spots where the author seemed unable to chose between two words and left both words in, which results in the sentence reading awkwardly. Other types of grammatical errors could be highlighted. The occasional spelling or grammar error in a book is not surprising, but the quantity of errors in this book was too great, reflecting poorly on both the author and the publisher.
This would easily be a four star book without the numerous mistakes.
I received a copy of the Kindle version from NetGalley in exchange for a review.
