Read on August 20, 2012

The story is detailed and is a police procedural in a more cerebral form. 
There is an element that keeps you in the story of what will happen?
The reading did not flow as I liked it to and at times I felt not captivated enough.
All in all it was a reasonable thriller but nothing too much to think of twice but an enjoyable little read.

The blurb has praise from a few bestselling writers but I felt short in connecting with a character.

Yes sorry mine was straight from the publishers. There's times when the story has characters and plot but just some don't payoff once finished it's a is that it feeling. Do you find this sometimes?

Oh dear I'll tread carefully


November Is Lovecraft Mythos The Haunted Reading Room Lou-yes, and that is so disappointing-so maybe I won't rush to get this one when available, as I did for the newest Adam Nevill, Last Days- couldn't wait till March 2013 for it to be on Kindle, so ordered it the first of the month from Great Britain in print. NO disappointment with it-will send you a recommendation. Meanwhile, I'll try to find other by Chris Mooney available over here so I can sample his writing.
