★★★★☆ great holiday read

my first douglas kennedy and i had to read it cover to cover last sat night! while a little trite for the first chapter, the dusk jacket blurb prompted me to keep going and a few chapters in I was enjoying the hint of unease and unexplained tension that was slowly rising. In the middle I was emotionally involved with the central character and in the latter third, just like a good drama movie i was hanging on what it would take to resolve Sally's dilemna. No gratuitous sex, violence or swearing either. ie ok for your mum or dad to read also.
