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.
This was an interesting mystery with a twist at the end, but it seemed a bit too repetitive and seemed to go on and on too long about something that had already been covered. Plus the psycho-babble really put me off.
