Publisher's Summary

A chance meeting with Jenny at an Oxford party leaves 17-year-old Chris with hope for a summer romance - and no premonition of trouble. Busy with his job and soon in love with Jenny, whose cheerful surface belies the dark uncertainty of her past, Chris misses all the signs of danger. Before he knows it, he's caught in the sinister web of a criminal whose desire for revenge crushes all those who stand in his way.

    "Journey into misery"

    Philip Pullman is a wonderful story teller, but this one stinks. You know that the victim is the heroine from the first sentence, you go through the romance of a 17 year olds first love, then you watch him turn into an imbecile and the heroine dies. That's about it. The last hour of this was really hard to take.

    "A great body leads to an unsatisfying ending."

    I quickly finished this book in 3 days, I was so enamoured. Moody got to the point, eliminating much unneeded background to allow the story to advance as quickly and reasonably as possible. The problem came near the end. The last sentences of the book came to me as an odd attempt to portray something disgusting as a moral lesson for the reader to take away. It forces the character Jenny, from the perspective of Chris, to act in a way that she never would. The ending is not congruent with the theme of the book as a whole, and it left me wanting.
