Interminable...save your money.
Somewhat original idea, poorly executed. Dialogue is stiff and predictable and all the characters speak in the same voice. She tries to differentiate the characters by the clothes they wear...the hippy boss, the rich friend, the distinguished gentleman...instead of through the language and voice of the characters.
The story tries to pull you in but then it takes forever to move along...200 pages...get on with it already we all know where this is going! The assumptions and liberties taken with story once it moves to Ireland are ridiculous. As if the police are going to open up an old investigation because of a childs dreams...please. And the bracelet conveniently found right near the body, when previously it was mentioned how much sand and silt was in the water.
There is no attempt to garner any sympathy for the child from the reader, she comes off as a weird little brat adept at manipulating her mother. I could go on and on...
I was disappointed, save your money it is not as good as it sounds.
