people held captive and they have to battle each other for life Still I can overlook that as at least held captive and they have to battle each other for life Still I can overlook that as at least weren t strangers to each other so there is an added element of emotion to the crime Indeed the first crime is handled well and the writing is claustrophobic and tense sucking you in the depraved web of the killer s psycheUnfortunately once you are past this bit the tale begins to wilt under a plethora of stale old tropes We have the ambitious policewoman who has been fast tracked to Detective Inspector who hates herself and has no time for anything but her job The ood copper who is crippled by his broken marriage and subseuent turn to alcohol as an amelioration and crutch Cue much mental eye rolling when reading these sectionsThe abductions also become much less intriguing and even verge on the downright silly in places Believability is not the key here in fact a healthy suspension of belief is reuired to et than halfway through this bookSome of the peripheral characters are just downright unlikeable and fall in to the pit of being completely unbelievable as people The journalist and the psychotherapist are two such that have no redeeming whatsoever Unfortunately they are both supposed to be strong
