Wow, this was so disappointing! So, Mr Parker: 1) If you really have to use both first and third person storytelling in the same book, try to make the "me"-person the main character - to me it was Hood that got the most attention. 2) Try to not make your "clues to the reader" so obvious that only retards can miss them. Try to describe peoples observations so they at least fit in during the circumstances, instead of stating them out out of the blue, making it obvious that "Oh, this will be useful in about a hundred pages!". (Example: company name on a van.) And regarding the clues to the identity of the "mysterious bad guy behind it all", I desperately hoped for a twist to come - "come on, sincerely, you can't make it this obvious!" (Like "Oh, by the way, he has an obvious physical condition that no other character has, and at least two persons comment on, just like that".) But oh yes, you could. 3) The ending - *sigh*. Oh, what a tiresome cliché... "oh, a heroine that is somewhat strong and enjoys sex on her terms - she must be punished!" Wake up, Mr Parker, this is the 21st century!
