This book is a so-so undemanding audible to.take when walking but fails to satisfy on several levels. The plot manages to be both unlikely and quite predictable. I kept waiting for the twist that never came. I also found some of the characters boring and, in the case of the journalist who turns up towards the end - unnecessary. The journalist character seemed to be there solely so the story could be retold through a newspaper article - why? We've just read the book! Lastly, much of the writing was so pedestrian and uninspiring eg. 'His car was messy. He apologised for his messy car...' yawn!
