The book was flat and it appeared to be a contract filling book. If Iris was trying to go Fifty Shades she needs not to. The book was flat and not real drama. It ended as it started weak.
I have come to expect a certain level from Johansen as I have read all her books even the ones with her son. I hope this was just a blip.
This was a very disappointing book and like another reviewer I feel I wasted a credit. I kept waiting for the book to build to a climax and nothing! The story and the main character was weak and I wanted to smack the main character. I actually thought at one point that the big reveal was that she killed Holly! That would have been interesting. Laura Lippman's other books were good and that is why I downloaded this book. I hope her next effort is more engaging.
