This was not a good read and definitely sub par from Abbott. Her first book from the DCI series was fairly good and I thought this would be interesting. Far from it.
The writing was weaker in this one and really lacked conviction. I wasn't convinced of anything the author mentioned and I was rather bored. The plot itself is simple but there was too much redundant details that made the story drag on. The background on Tom was absolutely boring and only there to get the reader interested in reading the subsequent installments. The complex plot line felt too fabricated and the twist at the end was rather stupid and made me want to throw my e-reader across the room. Needless to say I will need a break from Abbott's work ... perhaps even permanently.
