This was a rather interesting psychological mystery - but not a very unpredictable mystery. It's never a good sign when the mystery can be solved before reading the book... Just from the synopsis on the back of the book, it was pretty obvious whodunit. There just weren't any real surprises in this book. It was well-written, but neither the plot or characters were enough to make it anything more than your average mystery.
Wonderful psychological thriller with beautiful descriptive details. Very suspensful!
Good book, read it too fast, one of those who done it and really impressed at endind
This was the second book that I've read by this author. I wasn't impressed by "The Red Room" and this one wasn't all that great either. The story line is a great idea, but I felt that the execution wasn't all there. The ending was no surprise because of little hints placed very carefully throughout the book; I guess I just don't care for the style of writing. It was just okay in my opinion.
Interesting read. Seemed a little slow in sections, but picked up speed. Definitely some suspense.
Nicci French's first book. Definitely not as good as her later ones.
