I never read such detective stories, but I wanted to read this one. I remember that few years ago I saw movie on TV and I didn't understand it, it was hard to follow, and only now I bought a book. I was laying few months in my bookshelf, but suddenly I felt need to read it and when I started reading it- I couldn't stop. I read it all in three days, I was laying all days in bed and reading, reading, reading, because it was so interesting. Of course I did mistake that first I saw movie, so I already knew what gonna happen. But still it was very interesting book. It was impossible to go to sleep when so much interesting things were waiting for me in book.
But in the end of book, in last chapter, I got again confused like watching a movie.... I got lost because I cannot understand what was reality and what was imagined by main character. But it is good, because that what makes book interesting.

Review quote

"Chilling, thrilling and so clever you'll be chewing it over long after the final page" Mirror "A psychological tour de force. Absolutely nothing is as it seems in this effortlessly complex thriller" The Times Literary Supplement "Lehane's new novel carries an ending so shocking... that it will go down as one of the most aesthetically right resolutions ever written... A tour de force" Publishers Weekly
