Somewhere in this book. there was a really good story trying to get out and I'm not sure if something was lost in the translation but something went horribly wrong here.
I don't mind unlikable characters, I don't mind if every character in a book is downright despicable - but if they are, then they damned well better be interesting enough to keep me reading and the plot better be top notch.
As it was...well, I couldn't wait to finish it really.
two-dimensional sociopathic villainy aside for the moment, I had a lot of problems with the gaping plot holes and downright nonsense logic in this novel. Who the hell goes to a public place to discuss the fact that their children may have been involved in a murder?
Especially when one of the characters is politician with an extremely high profile? Eh?
The thing is, I was actually quite liking this book until the big twist kicked in and after that it all went downhill. Shame.
