Mo Hayder is sensational. This early written novel shows her talent in setting the story and delivering the narrative. I have read everything she has published and was glad to read this to compare to her later works. I was not disappointed.
No. Very, very long with a pitiful climax. More like a bad romance novel with a vain attempt to be grotesque at the the end. It is not a thriller in any sense and the only thing harrowing about it is getting through the whole thing. I persevered thinking it had to get better. I was wrong. I have never read Ian Rankin (referred to in the book's description) but this author is no Thomas Harris (Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs). Just No.
I thought this book was absolutely captivating...so unusual and multi-faceted. If you are looking for something really memorable and fascinating, this is it. This book is filled with stirring images, some so horrific but delivered with the poetic beauty of this amazing author.
