What the Critics Say

"Dark, gloomy and often sinister.... An intelligent and convincing thriller with fleshed-out characters you want to meet again." (Daily Mail)

    Story
    "Good grief!"

    Too many characters with similar sounding names,
    Not one is remotely likeable and none has anything that makes me remember them – but making the story very confusing …... all a bit ''nowt nor summat''.

    I was going to give a second star purely and simply because I did persevere and finish the book, however, I think that was more because I had no idea what the heck was going on, and in writing this review I am reminded of the weak writing and poor plot!

    Initially I got the impression that the characters were all in their dotage and living in a sort of 'Italian sheltered housing scheme', but part way through one of the women gave the ages of her children, and the age when she had her eldest – it turned out she was 52yrs!!
    There was far too much straying between different partners, totally nasty and illogical actions, unconnected assumptions …..... Oh goodness I cannot go on!

    Having heard the nasty reputation of Eastenders, I would suggest that this is like a version of Italian Eastenders.

    Poor Saul Reichlin did a very good job considering the material.
