Good, well written and researched murder tale, but...
on November 10, 2012
I did enjoy the attention to detail and the way the story was written. Not entirely original in concept, but it is a true crime tale,and the author did a great job weaving it all together. (Don't read on if you hate spoilers and haven't read it yet!)
Lissy is a classic sociopath, who lies even when it doesn't matter, whose lies are so smooth and so effortless that he is able to drag many women (and men) into his web of deceit. He cons yet another woman into marrying him- Kathy- in order to take advantage of financial gain, and almost immediately begins his plot to get rid of her, which is so cold and unbelievably easy for him to concoct, let alone con others into participating in.
There were moments when I realized I was still hooked but beginning to wonder why I cared, which is hard to explain and yet I feel I must mention. I'm thinking more attachment to the victim would help develop the reaction in the reader. This is why I gave it four stars instead of five. A page turner, but honestly I didn't care as much as I should have.
