I tried Hayder's Birdman and couldn't get through it but I still wanted to try another one, well, this is the last one!

This is a British police story that just drags on and on and just gets boring, there are so many pages of descriptions and way way too many characters. I didn't find the main character, Jack Caffery, interesting at all and the character 'Flea' just seemed ridiculous and the scenerio that she (Flea) being an 'underwater' cop hid a body in a cave that her brother had killed? come on give me a break!

It is a very slow moving story with too many British landmarks or towns or streets or whatever that it is just hard to picture any of the scenery or places and just hard to keep trekking on through the pages when it is not suspenseful or a thriller, maybe considered just a mystery but that's all.

I didn't find any of the characters likeable whether they were police or victims or neighbors. When you get so many people to keep track of it just takes away from the story to try to keep in mind who they are, what is their role, and who goes with who---so again, no more Hayder books for me!
