Review by VanessaCW
Set in the glitzy and glamorous world of film, lawyers and the media, this is a chick-lit style thriller involving dirty dealings, skulduggery and murder.It's a fast paced read and I particularly liked the characters of Anna and Matthew, two of the lawyers, and enjoyed their roles and storylines. However, I thought there were far too many other characters who were far too perfect. I also thought it was far too long with too many plot lines. It started off well and then got quite confusing with all the different threads and complications. I think it could have been condensed a little.My book was an advance reading copy and I expected a certain amount of omissions and mistakes. Unfortunately, due to the numerous, and I mean numerous, amount of errors, including actual name changes and completely incorrect words/grammar, the writing did not flow for me. This was a shame as I cannot say if it was well written or not and I feel that this is a little unfair on the author. I also think this went some way to spoiling my reading experience.Nevertheless, I think it would make a good beach read with only the sound of the waves in your ears and a cocktail for company! It would definitely take you into a different world.
