Some comments were:
'There seemed to be two stories going on' 'Why did Diana drive off from the scene of the accident? It didn't fit in with her character at all and the author never fully explained this' 'The book seemed disjointed' 'It didn't grip me' 'I found it annoying the way the author kept name dropping' 'The chapter where he has lunch with Steven Spielberg was not relevant to the plot at all' 'The argumentative relationship with Hawthorne detracted from my being able to immerse myself in the storyline' 'I enjoyed the book as a simple, easy read, murder mystery. ' 'What was real and what was fiction?' 'It is fun trying to spot the clues and work out the ending'
