Patrick Redmond ó 4 DownloadExpecting him to turn into a raving homosexual if homosexuals rave but without that I found his obsession with Michael unlikely even as an exercise in power Some parts of the story rang very true The in laws thing with Rebecca s family the fact that some women like Emmie have a deep need to be controlled

Seems To Me Such A Bland Dish That It Couldnto me such a bland dish that it couldn engender such strong feelings I know you are all oing to tell me you hate chicken casserole now I m not sorry I read the books as I find everything interesting but they were both basically unsatisfying I didn t come away feeling I had read a story worth hearing I 1,000 Awesome Writing Prompts gather Redmond himself studied the law and was a practising solicitor for many years and I felt insulted that he expected us to believe that because someone said I moing to tell the police you did it someone else and a lawyer to boot who wasn t there and no doubt had an alibi would say Oh my God in that case I ll do whatever you want for the rest of my life It would have been a lot credible if Michael had run Max over or stabbed him I did not like this book.
