    A good read, but in my opinion the book stops abruptly as if the author ran out of ideas. Too many loose ends and questions unanswered to be considered a complete novel.

    This is the kind of book that stays with you long after you've finished it. A book that makes you want to reward yourself with one more chapter before lights out. It is difficult to summarise the story without giving too much away, but it is a terrific story and is very well told. Three aspects of the novel I particularly liked. Firstly, it has pace. Events unfold quickly, making the book hard to put down. Secondly the story has layers. Events threaten Alice, causing her to question first her marriage, then her past, and finally her morality. This novel is not a standard page-turner. Lastly and satisfyingly, as the story unfolds the author's asides and aphorisms - sometimes funny, often thought-provoking - greatly add to the enjoyment of the read. Of these, "lies compound like debt until you can no longer pay the interest" might just be the over-arching theme of the novel. This is the sort of book you finish in one or two sittings, but you don't want to speed-read for fear of missing something. Recommended without reservation.
