I had no idea that Rose Tremain was a suspense/crime writer. I picked this up thinking it was going to be very literary and serious and it turned out to be a slightly advanced Ruth Rendall! Still, I do love a good thriller, and this one was great. I read it in about three sittings. I wouldn’t say this was an amazing book but it would be perfect for a plane ride and worked great on the tube. Will definitely have to go back and buy (or ‘borrow’ from the second floor at work) the rest of her books.
