If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Praying for Sleep?

I failed to finish this book despite being on a 12 hour car journey! Once I got to the scene where the mad man killed an animal then masturbated using the blood I switched it off. This book needs a warning! Horrid

Typical Deaver plot with twists all the way

What did you like most about Praying for Sleep?

Strong characters with lots of subplots. There was obviuosly going to be a twist at the end, it was intriguing to try and work it out before you got there ( I did in this case :-) ).

What aspect of Tim Machin’s performance might you have changed?

I felt that in mid chapter when the scenes moved to different locations there wasn't enough of a pause to give you a chance to realise you had moved elsewhere. This led to me feeling a bit confused at times.
