I enjoyed this though I found it confusing since I listened to tape one side two before side one. I couldn't figure out why it sounded like it started in the middle...cause it did. Duh!

Other than that, I liked the twists and turns of the mystery as well as the misdirection. First I thought it was Miles and then maybe Adam and finally I even suspected Jinx. I love it when they confuse you enough that you can't figure out who done it. I really liked Jinx and Dr. Prothario. The detectives, not so much. They were ok but being British they were way to serious with no sense of humor. I would definitely read other books by this author.

A good psychological thriller. It has all the right elements....murder, jealousy and sexual absession. Very "Hichcockian!"

The story line is good, and characterization is excellent, but still, I found this book to be tedious and very slow going.

The storyline is a good one, but I found it slow going. I tried it twice before I finally got into it, but then I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This isn't really a review, as I listened only to about 20 minutes of this before I decided I wasn't going to get interested in it soon enough.....Your mileage may vary.....reviews say it's very complex.....
