    " I like Val's writing style and content. You have to pay attention because she introduces people that seem not to have any connection with other people until they do... "

    " A well written book with a fatal flaw. I cannot read fiction that has a disjointed narrative, as this book does. I was only able to read about 25 pages before giving up. "

    " A Swiss woman chose this for our local library's English language book club after she heard an interview about it on the radio with the author. I had never read any of her books but I love mysteries. I will now read others by her as I come across them:-) "

    " The Big Reveal was pretty obvious from very early on, but she mildly subverted it with a twist at the end. Nicely written but not gripping. "

    " Val McDermid always shows you a good time when you read with her. There are so many plot twists and unexpected skeletons in the closet. I am really looking forward to this one. You never know where Val will take you. Very interesting. I would love to go to Italy someday. "

    " Val McDermid used to be one of my very favourite crime writers, now I mostly find her books forgettable. Sorry! Will probably keep trying them out though. "
