I picked up this book in the supermarket the other day. It’s in a series called Quick Reads and it was exactly that! I didn’t really take much notice of how long it took me to read it but I read the whole book in one sitting that was less than an hour.
It was an enjoyable little book, fairly predictable but still engaging. It kept my attention throughout and made me want to keep reading it. I think it would work well as an episode of Murder In Mind (a series of stand alone TV dramas shown on the BBC a few years back).
I think this book would be good to read on a train journey as its quick and entertaining but doesn’t require too much thought.
