really liked it

"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference."

This book was from the WHSmith at Terminal 2, Heathrow airport.  A new lie detecting program?  I couldn't stop myself from taking the book to checkout immediately.

Things I Liked About It 

- the plot 

Every chapter is small.  Each one well links with the next one.  When Judith and Constance were doing the investigation, I wasn't able to put the book down.  It was so interesting to get to know more step by step.  Later in part 3, when they were in court, I was still hooked.  Which was kind of surprising.  The thing is that I never really liked court dramas.  I've watched a lot of crime shows, but I hated the court scenes.  #whyididntwatchhowtogetawaywithmurders 

However, this book might just change my opinion.

- the characters

The main suspect Raymond 'Ray' Maynard is my favourite character.  We could get into his mind first-handed.

Things I Disliked About It 

To be honest, I truly enjoyed everything in this book.


I had a good time reading this book.  I'll definitely pick up another work from Abi Silver, that is, if she writes another book.

You should pick up this book if you 

- want to get into a genius' head 

- are interested in court dramas 

- like crime detective stories 

- want to know about lie detecting
