Juvenile and Predictable
Reviewed in the United States on September 27, 2021
It pains me to give any book such a low rating. I almost gave it two because I actually finished it hoping for a more satisfying explanation than I had already guessed. Sadly, I’d guessed right about the villain and motive, though there were a few minor surprises. A slow building storyline, boring domestic scenes, unrealistic relationships and emotional responses for anyone above middle to early high school age, and clumsy to the point of torturous prose made for a feeling of wasted hours I wish I could have back. I just can’t recommend this to anyone, especially not as a thriller. A sad 0 stars.
