review 1: I gave this novel a 2 out of 5 stars simply because it was dragged out far too much.As usual when you read one of my reviews; I find books tend to normally start really slow then gradually make their way to interesting, this book had this, but not very much.I liked how the story referred back to Rosie's appearance in another novel, The Dead Won't Sleep, so reading that novel first defiantly helped put into perspective who what characters where and why they played a part in Rosie's life.There was some things that didn't quite make since like, what was the point in Rosie doing multiple stories at once? And how on earth did she not die!? If this book was shortened down slightly, more dramatic but not overly done scenes, it would be closer to a 5.
review 2: ‘To T
... moreell the Truth’ by Anna SmithPublished by Quercus, 9th February 2012. ISBN: 978-0-85738-296-2Jenny and Martin Lennon and their three-year-old daughter Amy are on holiday with friends on the Costa del Sol, when Amy is abducted from the beach outside their villa. Journalist Rosie Gilmour is also holidaying in Spain, but a call from her editor Mick Mcguire in Glasgow has her driving to Marbella to cover the story. Arriving at the villa Rosie is just one more journalist camping outside the Lennon’s holiday villa. But Rosie is not one to let grass grow under her feet she devises a plan to speak with the Lennons. When she does she becomes cognisant that there is more to the situation than has been reported in the press. How much should she reveal? Later at her hotel she is approached by a rent boy who has information about the abduction, and she realises that she has been presented with information that the young rent boy doesn’t realise is dynamite. Rosie has information that puts her on the inside track in more ways than one.As she pursues her story she uncovers so much more than the abduction of Amy Lennon. Soon Rosie is walking a very fine line between keeping her editor happy and pursuing the abductors, for whom human life is cheap. The story moves at a cracking pace as several parties become involved in finding Amy, all have different reasons, but basically all have the same goal. An exciting climax to the story which ends with winners and losers, but whilst cheering for the winners one might want to shed a tear for some of the losers. An emotional and explosive mystery. Highly recommended. -----Lizzie Hayes less
