Smart writing. Liked how the choppy story-lines from different points of views came together at a perfect pace to reveal a well thought plot...even if I found this a bit far-fetched.
I liked the story but apart from feeling for the mother of the boy, I just couldn't connect with any of the other characters which it's a shame because I really wanted to like Nina the female main character. It would be interesting to see how this character develops in the next books.
An overall good read but 3.5 stars for me it is.
