I did enjoy the psychological part of this story so that part I would rate a 5. I felt there was not enough background on a few characters, so that rated a 3. And then there was the awful feeling of the ending. I really felt like someone just ripped out the last chapter of my book. It really was disheartening to get to the end and there was nothing but a cliff. So that rating is a 2. If this is the way Ms. Caine writes her books I'm really not sure if I would be inclined to read another.
