review 1: From the blurb I was really excited to get stuck into the book but when I got to reading it, it started really slow and I was almost tempted to give up. Until, the killer found a voice. It got better but 100 pages in I had worked out 'whodunit' in a book that is supposed to keep you guessing right until the last page. And it's not that I'm clever and generally work that stuff out, it just seemed massively obvious. Anyway I kept going and in some ways I'm glad I did, there was a great twist towards the end that I didn't see coming but then the lack of justice in the book made it end on such a low note I wish I'd never bothered reading it.
review 2: I’ve felt for ages that I should try one of Billingham's books, but the synopses of his previous works never
... moregrabbed me. This book looked different, and I suspect it is. In many ways a classic whodunnit of our times - a crime committed during a holiday in Florida, with all of the action taking place back in the UK. Keeping that holiday magic going when the pressures of everyday life kick in presents a challenge for the Florida 6. And when the old bill start to ask questions, the cocktail really starts to mix. Which one of them did it? Very few books keep you hanging on until the final pages. All the clues were there, but can you piece them together? I got close... Very enjoyable - and really rather good! less
