mostly believable characters...well-paced...enough surprises and a bad-guy with the evil media-charm and egotism to keep you interested in his outcome! Val Mcdermid has a twisted sense of people and their darknesses ; I've enjoyed 4 of her books now-
I agree with yafuid. I kept mixing up the characters and the plot seemed derived from a stock thriller-writing course. McDermid is usually fairly good at plotting and is always poor at describing the nuances of her characters. I knew that before I picked up the book. This time, however, even her plot was boring. And instead of providing good insight into her characters' personalities, she resorted to stilted dialog and even more stilted attempts to describe their thoughts.
pretty bad - stilted dialog, stock characters and conflicts, reads like it was auto-generated by picking bits out of any number of better mystery/detective books.
I am so glad I decided to pick up this book. I like flawed main characters and do they ever have them in here. This is the first book I,ve read in this series but it will not be the last.
Another great book from this author with Jordan and Hill as characters. Do not read if depressed...
A+ book. The 2 separate stories are well written brought together at end .
