Book Club set 122: Redemption / David Baldacci.

Too many characters too many deaths. Easy to read but most characters not well-rounded and some people and events were not convincing eg Natty's turnabout in his attitude to Amos the fact that Mary Lancaster was still working as a detective with early onset dementia and Melvin Mars working on a case as an impostor.

The superficial elements annoyed me eg emphasis on the size of detectives and vulgar displays of wealth and the scope of the violence in Burlington two families and a school as well as the body count during the course of the current story.

I found it interesting that both Amos and Mary suffered from brain issues with Amos having a particularly interesting set of symptoms which seemed to drive many of his decisions.
I always enjoy finding out about the families of detectives eg the loss of Cassie and Molly for Amos his relationship with Alex Jamison and the way having Sandy to deal with impacted on the lives of Mary and Earl Lancaster. However mostly the characters appeared and disappeared without readers having the opportunity to see them as complex personalities.
Grisham's latest novel addresses a similar issue - righting past injustices.

Lisa Jewell is a new author for me. I found this book on holiday and it was perfect. The story was gripping and Lisa Jewell's carefully constructed characters held my attention and I read deep into the night. The story is quite shocking and disturbing but beleiveable. A wonderful storyteller.

Absolutely brilliant book, if you love horror and thrillers, incredibly imaginative and descriptive. Was the book that spawned the Hellraiser movies featuring Pinhead. Must read!
