This is one of the most entertaining books I’ve listened to in a long time. Great pace, no long winded descriptions of scenery, sunsets or the colour of some waiter’s shoes!! The author has gone to extraordinary lengths to interweave characters and make you say “oh what the...” quite a few times as things unravel. Not because the twists are ridiculous (quite the opposite) - they’re just not what you expected over and over again until you can’t believe the author is still pulling out more twists and you still aren’t entirely sure exactly what’s going on!!

Slow

This is such a slow story, there’s very little real suspense - just a whole bunch of people all with obvious ulterior motives that aren’t at all clear. You don’t have a sense of uncovering facts along the way - it just drags on and on with a bunch of mysteries until the very end when the whole thing is laid on the table in 1 minute flat and you kind of think “really...?” The twist doesn’t match the narrative, you don’t look back and think “oh yeah - I see how I missed that” - there are obvious situations where you know there’s more to particular characters’ relationships but there’s not enough unpacking done of these relationships for you to have enough to form any real opinions about where the plot might be going.

Oh boy!! Compared to the first two Jane Hawk books this is sooo slow with over the top descriptions reminiscent of Stephen King at his worst and at least 1/4 of the story dedicated to apparent dead ends. This was hard work!
