A continuation of "Now You See Me" about police officer Lacey Flint. Second in the series. Off the deep end again about half way through. Great storyteller, crazy plots! Bolton's novels are hard to put down. But at the end it seems so unlikely. Even silly. This time a Dr. Bell, the local GP, keeps a whole flock of trained peregrine falcons in his garage to feed himself and friends fresh-killed game. Actually, it's a "cast" of falcons. You know: "gaggle" of geese, "murder" of crows, "raft" of loons, .....

Another good book in the series. Lacey goes undercover and finds herself a target of a bizarre and intricate plot to cause her to commit suicide. Mark Joesbury is back and Evi Oliver from Blood Harvest is a central character. A real page-turner. Only one thing bothered me. Surely a cop would NEVER be sent undercover, into a dangerous situation, without being fully briefed. A plot device but a head-scratcher.

Read them out of order, this being the last, and the best of a very fine lot. Already feeling Bolton Withdrawl, and hope SJ will bless us with another very soon.

It's official: I won't be able to stop until I blow through this whole series. I really like Sharon Bolton's writing, the creativity of her stories and the Lacey Flint and Mark Joesbury characters. On to book #3.

English novel about a Scotland Yard detective who is sent to investigate a series of an usually high number of bizarre suicides that are occuring in various universities among them is Cambridge University. The plot moves very slowly for me in the novel. The clues as to which methods the killer or killers are using - and some seem somewhat elaborate - for the way the victims are lured to their deaths seem somewhat contrived. Didn't buy the reasons for all of this.

Read all her books. Liked this one the best so far. Same interestingly flawed heroine as "Now You see Me" - Officer Lacey Flint's mysterious past is still only hinted at, obviously more to come. Plot is a bit over the top but a great read. Her characters leave you wanting to know more. Stellar writing compared to a lot of what's out there in the genre.

This sequel to Now You See Me is every bit as suspenseful & intricately plotted, just scarier. It really does define psychological thriller. The concept is terrifying & you'll struggle to sort the good guys from the bad. Read them in order to get the most from the second one. I will be waiting for the next.

Implausible, dull, and nothing like Now You See Me or Blood Harvest, in spite of repeated characters. I found myself skimming just to get it over with. Too bad because the writer has it in her to write incredible thrillers. Try Now You See Me, you'll know what I mean.

Great read. I've added Ms. Bolton to my must read list and suggest you do too.
