    A Real Page Turner...,

    I'm a big fan of Mo Hayder and Tokyo was not a disappointment. I finished it in just over 24 hours - couldn't put it down.

    The only reason I gave this 4 stars rather than 5, was because I felt there were a few 'holes' in the plot, that maybe needed filling in a little more than they were. Jason was an odd-ball character, but I felt he could have been 'fleshed' out a little more so that we understood why he was the way he was. Similarly, Grey's ignorance and background with her parents was never really dealt with so that we couldn't really empathise with why she reacted so badly to her 'condition' (don't want to give anything away to those of you who haven't read the book yet). Similarly, how did she become so entranced by the whole Nanking Massacre? Other than reading a passage from a book her parents owned, it's not really explained more than that. Finally, what was the deal with the Nurse and her special 'technique' of killing people? Grey was shown a distressing photograph of a crime scene, where it seemed the killer must have been very skilled to have carried out the murder in that particular way - this was glossed over and we never really got to the bottom of that either.

    Despite the above negatives, I really did enjoy this book - it was a great thriller and did a good job of wanting me to keep reading the next chapter and find out what was going to happen next. The chapters that dealt with the Nanking Massacre it's self in the late 30s was both gripping and distressing at the same time - it's hard to believe that humans can be so barbaric.

    I'm off to read 'Skin' next...
