Read full description of the books:
... defending the 'publication' of this 'book' is quite another. As it stands, what we have here is a decent first draft, but one that needs serious work. The plot is, I suppose, passable, if derivative (and you'll know whodunnit by about 33% at the latest); towards the end, though, it begins to spin out of the author's control.
So much for the positives.
The characters are hardly more than names, their dialogue and relationships no more than platitudinous cliché. By way of the traditional red-herring, Mr Lee simply and clumsily implicates everybody in everything, and in the process he makes the end of Hamlet look like a tea-party in Jane Austen. The eventual explanations of neither perpetrator nor motive are credible. As for the various misdirections, Lee hardly even bothers to explain. He's right: they don't really merit consideration.
But from the start, what makes this effort almost literally unreadable is the truly woeful standard of copy-editing (or is it just the writing?): spelling, punctuation and grammar all display errors that would shame a 12-year-old. Tip: if you don't know the apostrophe rule, don't choose to write about a character whose (note spelling, by the way: whose) name ends in -s.
Virgin Publishing ought to be ashamed; as for the 18 readers who awarded this 5 stars, they are loyal friends indeed.
Socrates knew only that he knew nothing. I know I can't write for toffee. Some people don't appear to be so wise.
