You can see in my update what i think of it so far. I knew i wasnt able to get this book in time for February group read but i just want to try a new contemporary author for me because i knew the gang in Pulp Fiction group is the closest to my taste in this field. I had never heard of this author and the book before. Now i know why that he has written only two books.

Lewis Weinstein Mohammed wrote ... The biggest flaw of the book is that it had a bit too many coincidences near the end. It stood out because before that i couldnt predict what will happen next.

If you can do it, I guess it's better to have surprises all the way through the book, instead of piling them up at the end. Would that have worked in this book?

Surprises at the end would have hurt the book much more, ruined a real,haunting story. The flaw wasnt a real flaw, it didnt stand out enough as negatively to hurt the the overall strengths of the book.

The coincidences at the end was good for emotional reasons hitting you hard in the gut. When you worried how the story would end for the people you liked.
