  1. I’m in the middle of this at the moment and enjoying it much more than I had expected to. It is the first of her standalone written since the Lacey Flint series that I have thought really works. However, I haven’t got to the end yet so I may be as sceptical about the way it finishes as you are.

  2. I do like Bolton’s writing, Margaret (although, in general, I agree with you about the use of the present tense). And there’s no doubt she can create a creepy story. Glad you found this absorbing.

  3. I’m very excited about reading this one. Think I said that I just couldn’t wait and ordered it from your side of the pond. I have it now, but haven’t picked it up yet. I loved her Lacey Flint series, but haven’t read many of her standalone books. This one sounds very, very intriguing. And, as another funny thing, I never even notice the tense of the book. Present tense does not both me a bit, apparently. Ha!
