Inhaltsangabe

A naked woman is perched on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers, 'you don't understand,' and jumps.

Later, Joe has a visitor - the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge - not only would she not commit suicide, she is terrified of heights. Joe wants to believe her, but what would drive a woman to such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil?

quite predictable ...

If you read a lot of crime stories and thrillers, you will find this annoyingly predictable. At certain key points, you want to climb into the story and just start hitting characters over the head for being obtuse. The conclusion has one nice twist but then fizzles out. The psychopathic villain has no real objective - to mangle an old saying, he kills his nose to spite his face. From a moralist perspective, it's really hard to understand how the 'reason' for the killings can just stand by until the last possible minute.

Despite its many problems, it's not the worst such novel I've ever read. The antihero protagonist is quite believable if not especially likeable.

Give it a try if you must. The narrator reads it quite well!
