About this deal

One tap at the window. Pretty soon however, things take a dark turn. During the night, Jan hears some odd noises, along with some faint taps at the window. Something, or somebody, is out there. It didn’t work out that way though, there were things going on, spooky eerie things. Was it man or beast? It’s not turned out the quietest of places to rest her head! It was pretty easy to work out some of the twist. Also I have to say that at times it sounded repetitive, unrealistic, too contrived, too difficult to buy into the story line. Some of the POVs felt unnecessary and more like fillers than of any importance.

Derek is a fascinatingly complex who so very well written, and you are still sympathetic for him even though there is a spate of serious crimes which seem to link him as the perpetrator. The strength of the storytelling keeps you hooked, and is an instantly fast moving and creepy story that is easily enjoyable for both the technophobe or tech savvy reader. PS: Its odd that the main characters were called Jan/Ian. And why so many authors have started to name their heroines with gender-neutral names? What's wrong with Janet or Janice? Or is that some sort of new requirement now?In this story newly single and unemployed Jan Hamlin (29) and married couple Ian and Emma Jennings, who have been through their baby's stillbirth find their lives interwined in very strange way... All medical data atrocious ... a phenomenon from medicine is borrowed and twisted and altered to ridiculous extents. Completed the book,perhaps I have a masochist tendency .
