Read in January, 2010

Interesting read on many levels. I'd heard about this international best seller but am somewhat confused as how to review it. There are two main stories going on. A business writer who has been disgraced is hired by an a wealthy businessman to write a family history and to look into the disappearance of his niece many years before. The other story line is how he can redeem himself and his career. Both of those stories are good and very compelling. But some of the side stuff, odd sex, serial murders, violence against women, international business manipulations just seems to make the author rant. Some is used to progress the story and some to no point at all. Also a lot of the names are confusing and you have to work to keep everyone straight. A good read but just know that there is adult content and language and the lead really isn't that likable.
