Format: Kindle Edition
Here are colourless characters in execrable escapades wandering through a predictable plot. A female protagonist Jaclyn, falls down in a doorway (on page 3) to be caught by a hunky man (shades of Shades of Grey), a cop called Eric. Best to suspend disbelief that doors in municipal buildings open outwards into corridors. The brief encounter precipitates 25% story development, 75% introspection by Jaclyn if she will resist or succumb to her lust.

By coincidence Jaclyn goes on impulse to a bar after a fraught day where Eric happens to be doing the same. This leads to six pages of laboured details of their one night lay (on page 40 – shades of bonk-buster structure). This incident precipitates . . . make that 15% story, 85% introspection, with the story including absurd artificial tension about waking a sleeping cop.

By coincidence Eric calls in at a service station just when it is robbed. How far-fetched is that for anyone who has ever needed a police officer to hand? However, the two principals are momentarily not together, except in both dwelling on sex, their sexuality and the attractions of the other person. Make that 10% story 90% looking up their own sexual organs.

Page one gives a clue this is production line pap. Wedding planner Jaclyn notes “A wedding was fraught with every emotion known to man. It wasn’t just the brides, it was the bride’s mother, the groom’s mother, the maid of honour, the bridesmaids . . .” All are women, so why the cliché “known to man”?

Make that 15% read, 85% abandoned.

solid crime story, maybe a little obvious as to who the killer is and the romance a little dragged out. but good
