I really liked the first part of this book. I think it to be the strongest opening I've seen so far from Nicci French. It is intriguing and full of suspense. After that, unfortunately, the story looses quite some of its power.
It starts to become almost Bridget Jones like, and it is very clear from the moment the second part starts, where this will all eventually end. I think it's a shame, because the book started so well, that it had to end like the way it does.
Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
