Another thriller- summer reading. This one is about a New York inspector who couldn’t stop a kidnapping to turn sour. He retires in Ireland hoping to escape his nightmares when his son’s girlfriend disappear. Will he solve the mystery- although he’s not in his juridiction? Yeah I know it all sounds awfully cheesy. But as a first novel, this one has more than a twist that keeps you hooked from beginning to end. I regret though that nowadays authors are competing to invent the most sordid past for their murderers in order to give some sense of ” reality” to the atrocities they make them commit. But I admit that it works – and it is sickening enough.
A good one. I’ve heard that Barclay next opus is not that good at all, so I’ll wait for it to come out in a pocket edition…
