This book was recommended at the end of Tana French's Broken Harbor. I allowed myself hope, but alas, the story was just okay and very predictable. Th..Show More »e dialog was on the weak side, suspension or reality was high and the characters seemed a little forced.
Overall there were points that were gripping, but to many others where I had to rewind because I drifted into my own thoughts.
Don't know if I will try the second in the series.
Just finished a four day marathon with the first two books of this new series. Loved the first one, and only liked this one. Narrator is excellent, ..Show More »and I like the co-starring characters that will no doubt populate the rest of these books (5 more? if we're to follow the days of the week concept) My favorite peripheral character is Joseph, the Ukrainian handyman. This book was always going to be tough because the first one was so excellent. it got a little bogged down in trying to perpetuate the main plot from book one, while simultaneously introducing new bad guys who were not nearly so thrillingly bad as the bad guys from Blue Monday. I will buy the subsequent books though, it does pass the "can't wait for the next one" test! Do get Blue Monday first, before you buy this one though. Definitely need the background to enjoy it.
