This is a book written in 1st person, which is also the first thing I don’t like about it..
Ok, that might not be the best way to start a review, but I gave it 2 stars, so it couldn’t have been all
that bad, huh?
This is a book about a Scottish Detective Ray McBain, who was once a kid living in a Catholic orphanage. Some bad things happened to him there, and somehow these things are coming back to haunt him now..
The plot could definitely have worked – ok, yes, we might have seen it all before, but it could
work. I liked where it could
have gone, but alas… no..
The thing is.. Nothing in this book surprises you.. The book tries to trick you into believing who the killer could
be, you just never believe it.
I love it the most when a book smacks me and takes me places I hadn’t seen coming at all
and this I had not only seen coming a mile away, I never believed in anything the MC was saying. The love story? What was that all about? Was it even necessary at all
No, it was not.
There were some funny moments in the book though, and I’ll leave you with my favorite quote:
"’Aye,’ Daryl joins in. ’I know what you’re trying to do, Ray. But in the nicest possible way you can shove it where your dildo don’t reach.’
‘I like that,’ says Allessandra.
‘Thanks. Me too,’ says Daryl. ‘Just made it up on the spot like.’ He puffs his chest up.
‘It goes with that Madonna song,’ Allessandra sings. ‘Papa don’t preach… I’m in trouble deep… Dildo don’t reach.’
