They decide to enlist Claire to lure him into a trap. How difficult could it be to get a confession?
This book was a very easy to read, I read it in one day. The story was good, and I actually liked the way it was written. I know I mentioned that I had looked at the book and I wasn’t sure I’d like the writing style. It was written like whoever was talking it said their name and then what they had said under it, if you get me? But, for me, it actually made sense to write it in this way. Claire is an actor and some of the book is written like a script which worked for me personally. I know some people mightn’t like that and I spoke to someone who read it and they weren’t a fan of the way it was written. I found the story to be so interesting but I would have liked more clarification at the end about how everything had come together. There were some things I was confused about which I think could have been cleared up. But, it was a good solid read and had an enjoyable story. The fact I can read something quick also brings a book up in my estimation because it shows that it’s well written I think. I did prefer The Girl Before, Delaney’s other book, but I’d still recommend this one.
