You never notice you don't have all the pieces of the jigsaw as the author skillfully feeds you them bit by bit with a few gasp out loud surprises along the way. Brilliant, could put it down
Anyone who doesn't mind a thriller with no resolution
OK this is a thriller. So to pretend it's some kind of literary oeuvre with no need for tying all the loose ends together is irritating to say the least, especially when you've used up a credit on it!
Simon Vance is, as always, a most accomplished narrator. One cannot fault him.
The most obvious fault with the novel is the lack of a resolution; you have followed these people through the whole novel, yet you are let down at the end, it is as if the author couldn't think of a resolution. So we have this wishy washy conclusion, and are left wondering what happened to Aimee?
