OK - let's accept that I'm pretty sure that if considered with any degree of care this book would make no sense and have plot holes you could plunge through. Who cares?! The twists and turns kept me clicking next page furiously, the main character thoroughly engaged, and the writing (while not genius) never got in the way of the rollickingly macabre and chilling plot. Could I argue wiht the pulpy ending, or the thematic issue of the drastic punishiment meted out to the heroine for sexual transgression? Of course I could! But again, good thriller fun -- never a dull moment!
