bookshelves: thrillers-crime, really-awful

Oh, wow. This was bad. I skimmed through to the end so that I could see if it improved at all, but no.

Things that clued me into its awfulness:
1. The list of the author's other books in the inside, some titles of which are: "Final Scream", "See How She Dies" and "If She Only Knew". Hmmm.
2. One of the first sentences of this book is "Erotically evil." Yes. That's a sentence.
3. Our main character talks to herself all the time - vast swathes of this book are her fascinating internal monologues, punctuated with her saying things like "Damn!" and "Bastard!" out aloud. Step slowly away from the crazy lady.

Crappy writing, crappy plot, crappy book. Kind of funny, in places, but that's not really a point in its favour.
