Whilst mildly entertaining I found this book one of the most irritating I have ever read. The suspense was created by ending chapers with "but little did she know....." or words to that effect. As well there were incredibly stupid actions by chief character Jane that for a so called intelligent person were just plain unbelievable. Several times I nearly gave up but having nothing else to read I ploughed on to the end. Not recommended by me however and I won't be reading any more by this author.
