To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A gripping enough thriller though it's not really a standalone novel - a lot of backstory is missing if you haven't read the previous entry(ies) in the series.
The identity of the killer was easy enough to predict, though (SPOILER ALERT) the motivation revealed at the end made very little sense. How does a qualified, trained and apparently competent medical professional - even if severely damaged from an abusive childhood - not know how babies are made?
This thriller was enjoyable until about half way though. It's too long and becomes a bit repetitive and therefore boring. But the thing that really lets this book down is the unbelievable ending and to be honest, in my opinion, the last hundred pages or so are a mess. I usually really enjoy Stuart McBride but I think he was just trying to be too clever this time.
