    " Not my favorite Minette Walters book. The overlapping plots were just a bit too much and not believable at all. I liked the Billy Blake character a lot and the friendships that get formed later in the novel, but the mystery portion of it was a bit too confusing and then came out with a series of tidy coincidences that kind of left me feeling cheated. The novel is about a couple of missing persons who were related to huge frauds and how their stories resurface when a homeless man is found in a woman's garage having starved himself to death. The journalist tries to be a bit Sam Spade-esque and doesn't really make it. "

    " When on holidays I like to read books that require little work on my part. Although I liked the storyline, there was some confusion for me with some of the characters. "
