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.
I am posting this five star review with some reservations. I really loved the story and how it was told, though I must say the ending was something of an anticlimax for me. But that just has to do with the difference in how people tell stories and now the content of this book. I liked the writer's usage of juxtapositioning the various characters. I liked the characters though I thought they might have been fleshed out a little more, but again that is one person's means of telling a story versus another. `I found the read to be very smooth and rapid after the first third or more of the story. The thing that gives me the reservations is there were many editing errors, so many that sometimes they were a distraction. They cannot be ignored unfortunately but they do not, in the end, detract from the story being unique, fascinating and vital. A good read. Let the problems be and read on. In the end you will be satisfied with your read.
Someone is savagely murdering woman in the same manner as a psychopath did twenty years ago. The Police Constable that investigated the original murders is now the Detective Inspector in charge of these latest killings. But with no physical evidence, how can she possibly prevent other innocent women from being brutalized.
Don’t let the editing errors stop you from reading this tale with its intricately linked plotlines that will appeal to puzzle fans. Ms Watts juggles the multiple plot threads briskly. The story is believable in both characterization and the ebb and flow of police detection. Due to the weightless writing style and smartly engineered complications, this is a complex, multilayered, and psychologically acute tale. The Ghost Illusion provides an excellent mystery to the very last sentence. Clear your schedule for this one—you won't want to put it down until you're finished.
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.
