Sad. Goes into graphic detail about what the person is feeling physically and emotionally as they are being executed by lethal injection that goes wrong. Why would anyone want to ready about that?
I'm the type of girl who likes to stick to the same authors and rarely like to try someone new. So by reading this novel, it helped give me a glimpse of the writing style and creativity of other authors I'm not familar with and truth be told, I'm impressed by their prose, albeit the chapters were too short.
The host of characters are complex and interesting. I suppose my only gripe is that I felt that a few of the characters weren't as fleshed-out, at least, not to what I'm accustomed to in a novel. That said, it doesn't subtract from the plot's overall enjoyability.
In my many readings, I don't recall hating a character as much as I hated Christopher Thomas. It wasn't long before I started reading that I wanted to off him myself! The authors have managed to paint him as a person with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Rosemary is a kind, guileless character and the opening chapter describing the eve of her execution had really affected me. It really made me question and re-evaluate my stance on the death penalty.
Half-way through the novel, I've tried to deduce who the "guilty party" was, so it came as a surprise that the ending wasn't what I thought it would be. I usually read who-dun-it mysteries, so the ending came as sort of a shock to me.
If you're anything like me, half of the enjoyment of reading a mystery is trying to play "detective" and figure out who the perpetrator is, then this book is worth your while. I really do hope that these talented authors collaborate again and give us another treat sometime in the near future.
That being said, this was one of the good ones in this style, which is not suprising considering some of the authors involved in the process.
The story line is not particularly unique - someone, who is perhaps innocent who is wrongfully accused of a crime, together with the ramifications and doubts of those involved in the case. How the authors bring it together makes it special.
A gripping read that is well worth it.
