Being a great fan of the Detective Kim series, I was excited to pick up this book. Though it couldn't be further from that series, it was just as brilliantly written and the story held a nice pace with many twists and layers. I'm an Angela Marsens fan for real!
After devouring the Kim Stone series I was keen to try anything else by Angela Marsons and was not disappointed although it is not something I would have picked without the previous connection. I felt one of the players was a bit hard on Kit given the circumstances but otherwise it was a totally compelling story I could stop listening too.
I found this book in the Crime/thriller section not sure what its doing there. I do not think the cover or title reflect the story.However I found this story surprisingly intriguing and inspiring. The author addresses complex social subjects with sensitivity and insight. I particularly enjoyed the feminist undertones. Most of all I am very impressed that the typical clinched ending was avoided.I found this book genuinely inspiring.
awful, full of clichés, flat one dimensional characters, saccarin like narration was unbearable in parts. the author used phrases from another of her novels and very similar themes. not worth the money
