it was ok
bookshelves: didnt-finish
Read in December, 2011

Tried this one because I read a review and was interested to see if the author could make the world of the 90's come alive with a good thriller. Couldn't get very far. The protagonist (1st person POV) seemed incredibly naive (I felt like the author was going for sophistication but wasn't sophisticated enough herself to make it work) and I didn't like the woman that she was so fascinated with. Drugs, drugs, drugs. Great. Not exciting. The time period kept on going back and forth and that wasn't handled smoothly. I knew there was a Secret, but could never care what it was, so I stopped.
