Hmm, this was okay, a story about a woman who witnesses a death on the Underground and then various ‘random’ things happen. It was nice reading a book about parts of London I know well but as a consequence I guessed the answer to one of the plot points pretty quickly. Some of the characters actions weren’t always that believable and some of violence felt a bit gratuitous, in that in some books that level of violence is to be expected because it’s that sort of book but this story did not present itself as seeming to be that way, so the violence, which was largely sexual assault related, seemed, like I said, gratuitous.
