Simon Kerning Fan

Enjoyable enough and breaks from the normal Simon Kerning plots a bit. If you are a fan of them you'll enjoy it. If you've not read his stuff before try severed or rentless first they are superior books.

They're not having much luck....

Ever feel that when it rains it pours? I do like Simon Kernick, but some times he makes it so hard for the reader to fall into his world.

A little spoiler alert here.

Imagine having a rubbish life. Your parents are dead and you've been stuck in abusing foster care since you can remember. Then, finally, you are placed with new "parents" who actually seem very nice. You think everything is fine until, one day, you're out on a pleasant family trip when suddenly your new guardians get killed too. Terrific.

Then you find yourself chased by a Russian mafia boss's hench men. Great.

Then you're chase and attacked by dogs. Wow.

Then when you think you're finally safe, you find yourself locked in a room alone with an aged, perverted old man. Really?

Then to top it all you're almost strangled to death by someone you trust. Come on...

You're then taken to yet another predators house...I'd give up.

All this and you're just two sisters trying to get on in life.

Even though they seem to consistently jump out of the fire into the frying pan, then another frying pan, then another frying pan etc, and I did find myself shaking my head in disbelief, I did actually enjoy the story. I have certainly heard worse. I've also heard better.
