I tend to be a character-driven reader. I like to have at least one character whom I like and/or trust, but even that's not cast in stone-- which is a good thing because none of the characters here are very likable. Tessa (hotel employee) and Brian (a man who shows up out of the blue) seem to be the main characters, but the rest of the cast are mere cannon fodder for the roaming team of killers while readers are treated to voyeuristic scenes from various cameras. To be honest, I only began to enjoy the book once the real narrator was revealed toward the end.
One of the main reasons I love to read crime fiction is to have the universal question of "Why?" answered. I want to know why the crimes are being committed. In Security, readers are never told with any certainty why ruthless killers are turning Manderley Resort into a blood-soaked house of horrors.
Multiple points of view, unanswered questions, and a story that ends with an unfinished sentence (I liked that)... while I didn't find Security to be wholly satisfying, I did find its more unconventional aspects intriguing and promising. I'll be interested in reading Gina Wohlsdorf's next book.
It takes place in a highly-secure hotel, thus the title. But the security measures are limited to cameras everywhere. Much of the story is told from the viewpoint of these cameras, a gimmick that gets old fast.
The action is very repetitive. Characters are shallow, most exist to be fodder, nothing more. Comparisons to Stephen King are ridiculous. There are brief moments where the writing exceeds the bland subject matter, as though the author would rather be telling a different story altogether but her publisher insisted on a body count, but not nearly enough.
