This was a quick read and the perfect antidote to my heavier reads of late. The book maintained an overtone of suspicion and kept me reading to discover the resolution. I couldn’t be sure, as I read, where this sinister hint came from, but it certainly worked for the plot. One can tell from the cover that something violent will happen, but I could not have quite predicted the ending. I don’t want to spoil it, but since I really disliked Todd, I was pleased with the conclusion.
I recommend this one. While it has deeper moments, it doesn’t require much in the way of concentration or effort – it would be a good beach read.
