Women without Mercy by Camilla Läckberg
After hearing good things about Camilla Läckberg, I decided to give her a try. I borrowed Women Without Mercy. As I was in a hurry to get something to read, I didn’t read the blurb. Instead, I downloaded it and jumped right into reading it.
The story about three different women was initially engaging so I kept on reading for bit more than an hour, and then all of a sudden, the story was done, the end! It turned out that this book is a novella, and the ending was not very exciting at all, I’m sorry to say.
After I finished it, I went to Goodreads and read the blurb there, and it basically gives away most of the story. The point of the blurb is to entice the reader to buy and read the book, right? In this case, most of the book is already given away in the blurb and when it comes to the murder part, those are just thrown in with loads of loose ends.
It looks to me that this book was started as a good idea, based on the classic “Strangers on the train” but didn’t quite manage to bring a good start to an equally good finish.
My review: ⭐⭐
