Nightlife by Thomas Perry

Really interesting story – quite a different line for the thriller novel. But it fails to live up the quote on the front “It’s scary” – it isn’t, and the suspence fails to build.

Put it this way I was 20 pages from the end and I managed to put it down.

It also ends in a really oh-shit-i-need-to-finish-and-i-promised-i-wouldn’t-use-more-than-300-pages-and-i’ve-already-used-400 way.

Great great concept, would make a very powerful film. The book just doesn’t do justice to the plot.
