    1. Lindani

      This is a good Novel which puzzle the mind of the reader in some pages.I didn't like the end though,I think Ros must have clealy head Carol saying 'She was right about Him(Stiven or Alan)'but those words didn't come out clealy for Ros to hear them, otherwise Ros would have told the police that Carol was not killed by the wrongly accussed Stiven(Alan).I like Jeremy's writing style if I may may call it so, when you started reading the book, it's not easy to stop because you want to know what is go [...]

      To begin with I thought that there were too many different characters being introduced in different places, but as I read further it all became clear. I wasn't prepared for what happens towards the end. Although I enjoyed the story all the way through, it was only towards the end that the tension began. Very different!

      I liked it though I did get a bit confused at times because of the ever changing time line but the book moved at a good pace, I was able to identify with the characters and it was exciting. It's also set in my neck of the woods so that made it even more interesting to me.
