Wow. If I could give this half a star, or no stars, I would. I actually can't even believe I finished it. So terrible. The writing is perfunctory in the worst way, the dialogue completely unimaginative and banal, and the plot ludicrous. To think that "Noise Abatement" was so great. You'd never imagine this was the same writer. PASS on this one.

I have been very impressed previously with Carol Anne Davis' thrillers, her characterisation of ordinary people as well as of psychopaths is disturbingly effective (demonstrating her expertise in criminal psychology) and three or four of her others I have enjoyed and been affected by. 'Kiss it Away', 'Safe as Houses' and 'Shrouded' I particularly liked.

This was less so. The story surrounded a manipulative man who preys on vulnerable women he meets as part of his job as a grief counselor. The sho

I picked this book up in the library but I believe it shold also be found in a porno shop. This novel is nothing more than one explicit sex scene after another. There's no suspense or mystery involved, just straight out sex. If you do decide to read this book make sure you have soap and towel handy because you will be needing to take a shower after you read it.

Generally liked the plot--though very graphic sexually in places, but great insight into the human mind.

This is the worst book I have ever read. Terrible from the beginning, but I convinced myself to keep going since it was short. What a waste of time. I wish I could give it negative stars.

I quite enjoyed this book, it kept me reading, but there was some features regarding the characters that annoyed me. There are two main male characters, psychotherapist Adam Neave and his patient Brandon - both are psychopaths whom I thought were so evil and cold-blooded that they were not real, flesh and blood characters, and I thought the police undercover agent Olivia was far too gullible and naive to be in that role. The story is told from multiple viewpoints which I thought made the story r ...more
