Given how tight the publishing marketplace is, I am very surprised that this novel found a home. I read it on my sister's Kindle over the holidays and I assumed it was self-published. The characters are flat, the narrative amateur, most of the twists obvious. It lacks a single memorable sentence or image. The quality of prose is barely above that of fan fiction. I would suggest therapy to anyone who thinks that the protagonist is anything other than a simpering twit. And, like most bad novels, it goes on way too long.
