Sometimes being a voracious reader of crime fiction can make it really hard to give a new book a fair chance. If you spend a lot of time on the dark streets or in a locked room, you've come to know (and often, detest) some of the clichés of the genre. You're aware of the trends, and which themes and approaches are overdone. It's actually rather sad to pick up a book like Eye of...more

Als een rode draad in dit verhaal loopt een zaak uit het verleden die in delen verteld wordt, maar hij springt zonder enige aankondiging zo van het heden naar het verleden en vice versa.
