- Author Lisa Gardner
I’ve shied away from Lisa Gardner books in the past after finding one of them particularly vicious, harsh and featuring just slightly too much hate for my tastes. However, I thought I shouldn’t base my assumptions on just one book so picked up this one in a sale.
I hadn’t realised it was the second in a series, but it didn’t feel like I was missing any information anyway. The story is far-fetched but somehow captivating, and although the crimes are hideous, there isn’t an awful lot of violence involved. There’s a serial killer to be caught but his crimes are dated by several decades, so the horrors are already done.
It was an interesting book, certainly managing to undo some of the hurt that the previous Gardner book did, and the tale was inventive. I’m still not sure it was entirely my cup of tea, though.
