I really could not get to grips with this book at all - I am assuming it was a translation and perhaps something was lost in that way. None of the ch..Show More »aracters seemed real, I rarely give up on a book but I have on this. It feels as if it is trying to fit into a pattern of 'write yourself a thriller'. The characters are stereotypical and I had difficulty believing this was written in this century. The stock characters in the police - good cop, bad cop, grumpy cop, thoughtless managing cop - they are all there in one big basket. I will avoid this author in the future.
