Shelves: mystery, british
I got this as a free book with my Sony Reader. The language is a bit British, but not still readable. This was an incredibly complicated mystery. I'm not sure things were really resolved at the end, since it seemed to me the heroine still had a huge pile of issues to work through. The characters were very well drawn, I will say, but the plot was incredibly convoluted. I don't think I'll be seeking out other works from this author.

Okay, I think I liked this. I picked it up because I read a novel by this author last year and enjoyed her style. While her style is there it is obvious that this was a very early work.
I liked the story, but found it horribly confusing. I kept forgetting who the characters were. Also there were a lot of words for a fairly slender storyline.
It hasn't put me off, she writes really well, but her later stuff is definitely better. This was written by someone still honing their skills.

Fantastic book! Dodie Blackstock's mother was kidnapped when Dodie was eight but her mother's body was never found. Now, twenty-one years later the body has finally turned up - and her mother has only been dead for fourty-eight hours. A mixture between a mystery and a crime this is a really enthralling read, definitely recommended even if you don't usually read books from this genre. 9/10

It was a OK mystery. I said OK and not good because the whole conlusion and resolution felt weak. It was nicely written, I liked the characters, but I did expect a little more in the end.

The plot line had a lot of potential, but the character development is just too poor.
