And our kicking butt heroine just keeps on giving – great stories and ways to catch those sneaky demons! And keep those hot boys on their toes – not to mention deal with that misogynistic Brotherhood.
Yes, it’s true, Madeline McCann has, sort of, been involved in the concept of this story-line – not that the book attempts to write her story, but rather the idea of a 3 year old child going missing and never being found despite intensive and extensive searches is.
The father is truly a horrible man and you realise why he has so many wives and yet, when it comes down to it, he has a lot of power that he wields to his own benefit despite what it might do to others, including his family.
i enjoyed the way the narrative went from past to present – which is a conceit that id currently being used by many writers as they move the story along through different eyes and different times. Truth is definitely in the eye of the beholder in this story and it takes for the reader to be able to distinguish these truths from reality. and so it hooks the reader in and keeps you reading. The ending has twists you may not guess, which is always, for me, a sign of a good plot.
A well crafted novel. And an author to read.
