I read quite a lot of thriller/action/crime kind of books, but I didn’t really like this one. When it came down to it, the underlying story was quite good, but the beat of the story, the way it flowed didn’t resonate with me, and there were several things about it that I really didn’t like.

There was such an anti-male theme running through the whole book, which is somewhat understandable given the sort of crime that is dealt with, but isn’t very comfortable to read. I don’t always need to read pleasant things but I really don’t need to read vitriole against men.

Only one of the characters was particularly likeable, the others were far too stereotypical. I don’t want to give too much away, but I got quite irritated that they all seemed to be falling in love with this woman for no apparent reason whatsoever. Anyway, it wasn’t the worst book I’ve read but I don’t think I’d recommend it.
