    Loved it on so many levels

    I loved The Detective's Daughter. I had wanted to read it, but did not get around to it for at least a year- while I wanted to read it, I wasn't *sure*it would be good. Well.. as I obviously say in my review title-I loved it! Although I'm older now, and my parents were never separated,I can relate to main character Stella's quiet care but distrust of her family. But it is the combinationof a somewhat unusual interesting unsolved crime, *and* fascinating characters that made me love this book! Thomson's writing style is subtle. I was never hit over the head with anything and there were no cheap gimmicks. While two of the main characters are *not* especially out-going and friendly - I found them wonderful. The mystery is different and I honestly didn't guess who "done it". As I say, it is subtle but interesting writing that insidiously becomes exciting, even shocking.. but to me it's the interplay of the characters- the Detrctive's daughter,her memories of her father, and the man she hires-and the unusual cold case murder mystery that make this story. Try it.

    The Detective's Daughter

    A very convuluted, spell-binding story . Characters were very interesting . An author who clearly puts lots of time in to constructing her stories .

    Complex story but well worth the read.

    Interesting and intricate plot with strong well-drawn characters.There are surreal elements along the way and I had a niggling feeling that the author had gone one coincidence too far to tie up the ending.As well as the people, the story paints an interesting picture of suburban London and nearby areas during a period of atrocious weather. In addition, the reader can pick up many useful hints about cleaning houses and commercial premises from the principal character who runs her own cleaning company. Well worth putting in the effort required to see the story through to the end

    WORST BOOK I'VE EVER READ

    WORST BOOK EVER!!! I'd give this zero stars if I could because it doesn't even deserve a single star. I can't believe this book got published, much less a series of books. It was completely confusing. There were entire chapters with nameless characters that were not referenced or resolved upon the story's conclusion. Dialogue where you couldn't tell who was speaking even if you read backwards to try to deduce the speakers. Characters that added nothing to the story (e.g. what significance Isabel Ramsay, her daughter, and cleaning her house have to do with the plot's progression???) Character actions that made no sense whatsoever (did I misconstrue this, or did Jack/Justin/Jonathon live with people without their knowing? How is this possible???) What was the purpose of Paul? Another totally irrelevant character and long series of events wasting my time. And Sarah? What was her purpose? I am so sorry I wasted my time reading this book. I stupidly kept hoping that all these questions would be answered and loose ends would be tied up in some fantastic, twisted ending, but I was sorely disappointed. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME (AND MONEY) TOO!!!
