A little disappointing but still a good read.

The shape of lies review
I am a huge Rachel Abbott fan, I've read every one of her books and couldn't wait for her latest book The Shape of Lies.
I have to say that I was a little disappointed in some aspects of this book. I just felt that the first two thirds of the book were very drawn out and a little far reaching.
I love the character of Tom Douglas and this has been expanded on beautifully, but when it came to the actual plot I had no trouble in ascertaining who the killer was quite early in the story. Having said that, insight into how their scheming and planning evolved was good reading.
This is still a good read but I don't feel that it is up to the standard of her other storytelling.
