Psychiatrist Carl has experienced almost identical murders by another man a generation ago.
I debated how to rate this crime thriller. There are many things I loved about this book. The overall story line is original, gripping, and filled with complex characters. It was difficult for me to stay away from the story, and until it became obvious, I was kept guessing as to 'whodunnit.' My debate with rating came down to several issues. As it stands at this date, I would urge the author to have a professional editor clean up the manuscript. For as excellent as the story line is, I was continually distracted by grammatical/punctuation errors and abrupt changes of scene/POV. I also honestly felt the ending a tad abrupt - I didn't feel completely satisfied with it but I'm sure that many people will. Overall, I recommend the story if you aren't bothered by the issues I mentioned. With a bit more work, this story would be top notch.
Her story is intriguing, and filled with fully developed characters, but again, this might be a place for a guiding hand. With so many voices commanding attention, the book at times loses focus. No spoilers, but Ms. Watts uses a fascinating psychiatric condition which could have been made even greater use of if not quite as many characters were present crowding her stage.
Her writing at times is crisp, the story page-turning, but those errors! I also felt the ending was abrupt and added nothing we do not already know, save for something rather unremarkable.
She is an author to keep an eye on as her British fans already know.
I voluntarily chose to read this ARC and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased
The author gives the main characters backgrounds and a life outside of work, building them up as complete people. I hope this is the first in a series as the author could well take the characters further.
My only complaint about this book is that the chapters are too short for my taste. While others may like this, to me it makes the book too disjointed. I would like the scenes to be build up more before moving on to the next one. It would well double in length by adding more depth to the scenes. Some feel a little rushed and have been added to just let you know what a character is doing rather than adding to the story.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this.
