The girl who wouldn't stop riding the train... even though she should...
It is an interesting novel - but not truly page turning or really compelling. I can't even say that I passionately cared about the characters, and it felt like there were holes in the how the police investigation took place. This is where my bias reveals itself, I have loved several series of police procedurals and how the stories and characters are crafted, and the mystery is solved.
I am struggling a bit trying to describe how I reacted to this book in a snappy, quick review. Did I mention I would give it 2.5 stars out of 5?? I guess what got me that there really wasn't a lot of character growth. The twist that is revealed isn't all that surprising, and it is more just sad how things work themselves out,
I can't quite say that I am going through a reading slump, but I can't say that I have been books that have been knocking my socks off or rocking my perspective either. Next up, I am playing it safe and reading a book by John Lesrcoart and returning to the world of San Fran.
