It was really difficult to guess as to who was the real culprit. I'm usually able to predict most of the WHO DINNITs but this one had me guessing till the end. Nice Job Tilly. Hats off to you.
Its not much of a revenge story though, but more about the survival of a simple and naive girl who has been wronged by almost everyone in her life. Its the story of her survival, of fighting against the odds, and I really love that.
I would recommend it to all Sidney fans.
1.The story is written in simple english so you can read it with ease
2.The story though predictable but it is full of twist and turn.
3.the Discription is so imaginative that they nacessitate you to draw your own picture of event like the events are happening in front of your eyes
4.this is the best buy in this price
1.the ending is predictable though it sometimes give you feel that what you think is wrong
I guess I am being too harsh on the book, well! cant say I did not enjoy it. The writing reminded me a lot like Sheldon-there were moments when I felt I was actually reading a novel written by the master storyteller himself. Tilly Bagshawe has adopted Sheldon's style and used it to her advantage. There were a few lines which seemed too gross like "if only she kept her mouth shut and her legs open, she would have been alive", but they were too few and we can actually ignore them.
Tilly manages to create a strong female protagonist Grace and a different villian in John Melville (this is not a spoiler). The writer lets us know about Melville right in the first few chapters of the book. There are few surprises but to a regular Sidney Sheldon reader, they are quite predictable.
The gruesome rape sequence in graphic detail sickens us and makes us feel sorry for the victim. Tilly manages to create an atmosphere of terror as well as manages to evoke sympathy for the victim
The plot details are as follows:_
Grace shocks her sisters and friends by marrying a much older billionaire Lenny. Lenny has started a hedge fund called Qorum along with his trusted aide John Melville. Lenny is killed in a freak sailing accident and a multi-billion dollar fraud is unveiled. Melville frames Grace for the crime and she is transported to the women's correctional facility, abandoned by friends and family. She escapes from there to trace Melville and realizes that Lenny's death was not an accident but a carefully planned and executed murder. She takes it upon herself to prove Melville was behind the crime.
Well! you do have clever twist ending-revealing it would take the fun away.
If you love a good mystery (even though predictable at times) and want to tie yourself up with a book that does not bore you to death with silly descriptions--I would recommend this one for you-a word of advice though: read this book with an open mind and do not have any preset expectations and you won't be disappointed.
