I was surprised at how boring this book was I didn t expect to love it I had just finished another book and my mom handed me this as a creepy page turner but warned me not to expect much She knows I rarely read these generic beach reads but I m not so snobby as to not enjoy them somewhat.I was expecting the standard mystery thriller with a lot of suspense Instead, what I got was a promising beginning that was incredibly gruesome but that quickly went downhill from there Even the ending w I was surprised at how
I should pay better attention when I order books This is a novel by Peter Robinson, the Yorkshireman who writes the Inspector Banks series This book, Caedemon s Song, did not feature Banks at all and I have to say I was disappointed when I realized this But.my fault for not carefully reading the description before I clicked buy , right Robinson stated he wanted to take a break from the DCI Banks series and write from the victim s point of view, rather than the police procedural type The pr I should pay better attention when I order books This is a novel by Peter Robinson, the Yorkshireman who writes the Inspector Banks series This book, Caedemon s Song, did not feature Banks at all and I have to say I was disappointed when I realized this But.my fault for not carefully reading the description before I clicked buy , right Robinson stated he wanted to take a break from the DCI Banks series and write from the victim s point of view, rather than the police procedural type The premise of this story revolves around a young lady named Kirsten who was brutally attacked one evening as she walks home alone through a park The wounds she suffers are horrific She survived only because she was found by a man walking his dog, otherwise she would have bled out Kirsten wakes up in hospital over a week later, unaware of what happened to her She has no memory of the attack Her parents are in the hospital room with her, concerned about the injuries and how they will affect the rest of h
I loved this I listened to it on Audio CD on a long work journey this week and drove past several service stations even thought I desperately wanted a coffee, just because I wanted to carry on listening The book starts with a brutal attack no graphic details as the victim can t actually remember what happened to her Kirsten is a University student on her way home from a party to celebrate the end of their exams when she is grabbed from behind and subjected to an assault that leaves her for I loved this I listened to it on Audio CD on a long work journey this week and drove past several service stations even thought I desperately wanted a coffee, just because I wanted to carry on listening The book starts with a brutal attack no graphic details as the victim can t actually remember what happened to her Kirsten is a University student on her way home from a party to celebrate the end of their exams when she is grabbed from behind and subjected to an assault that leaves her for dead She wakes up in hospital 10 days later with no memory of what happened to her Meanwhile, a little across country, Martha has arrived in Whitby on a mission She i

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I found it really hard to enjoy this book Partly because I found it very difficult to work out when it was supposed to be set this is explained the in the afterword by the author , but also because I d guessed Martha and Kristen were the same person very early on That made elements very predictable She was also an incredibly self involved, unpleasant character, which made me reall
I loved this book A girl s last night in college and she is brutally attacked She is determined to find the person who committed this awful act I could not put this one down. A stand along mystery by the author of the DCI Banks series Ostensibly the story of two women with alternate chapters, one a recent graduate Kirsten who is attached and almost killed by a man who turns out to be a serial killer The other is Martha, a woman on a mission to track down a man from her past in order to wreak vengeance on him
I love the way the author ends every chapter with a cliff hanger The pace of the story is good I won t say it s great, but it will definitely keep you at the edge of your seat Definitely worth a shot.
