On the face of it, this book kinda creeps up on you. There are two main story lines that cross with each other a little bit, separate, one concludes and the other takes you all the way to the end. The pacing of these appear gentle compared with some "rollercoaster" books but it is a skill of the author that the attention is kept throughout the book without the need for any theatrics! The characters are great, real and well fleshed out. You really do care about some and loathe others and change y [...]
Extremely imaginative and non-formulaic story telling. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that I didn't really like most of the characters. A notable exception was Dylan, whom I absolutely adored. The abrupt end to the Manjit subplot was also unsatisfying. Still well worth reading, all in all.
This is an independent review as a result of a `read for review' request.It is difficult to give this well-written book a 3-star rating (actually 3 1/2 but I'm not allowed the half), but there are very good reasons for doing so. First the positives: The story arc starts at the first page and satisfyingly ends at the last and the subplots are many and complex. The characters are well-drawn. I like the writing so much, I will be looking out for Kate Vane's next book.The defects consist of bad deci [...]
On the whole, not a bad thriller, but it needs some tidying up.Nat Keane was a young police officer when Sandie Thurston was murdered in her own bed and then found with her young daughter, Amy, asleep beside her. Amy was quite possibly the only person who could identify the killer. In her capacity as family liaison officer, Nat worked closely with the family through this awful tragedy. A man (well known to the family) was eventually convicted of the murder, but for some reason Nat didn’t feel [...]
Recognition is a British mystery story, by author and former probation officer, Kate VaneORY OVERVIEW: Nat Keene was a family liaison officer with the police department when she encountered her first murder. The victim was Sandie Thurston, a young mother. Her five year old daughter, Amy was discovered in bed with Sandie’s mutilated body, covered in her blood. Nat got very close to the family, in fact, a little too close. When a man was convicted of Sandie’s murder, Nat left, feeling broken a [...]
Clever, clever, clever! Well written, well executed mystery story with some great twists. Took a few chapters to hook me, but once I was in, I wanted to see where this was going and read well into the night to get to the finish. The author did a great job developing the story line with many great clues that seemed to leave the author open to end the story with a few possible villains. I was guessing right up the very moment the truth was exposed - and I didn't see that coming at all! I liked how [...]
I want to thank the author for giving me this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book, it is a mystery that keeps you on your toes. The characters were all great and thought out, you could really feel empathy for some and hate for others if not a strong dislike. For me, I am always thinking and I was wondering about a few different people. The author is good about not giving it away until the very end, but she also gives you some clues along the way. The book was very good and kept [...]
I gotta say that I'm shocked at who Sandie's killer turned out to be and the motive behind it. It almost appears as Sandie had it coming, given the emotions behind the murder. It almost made me feel sorry for that character, though some eye for an eye would've been nice. You can't get what you want, but I got what I was expecting; a psychological cop thriller, not a revenge tale. Great job to the author.
