A detailed story with good, strong characterisatio...

Same old, slightly tired, plot and definitely not ...

I am a very recent convert to the draw of Martina Cole novels. I think I read my first of her novels sometime last year, and since then I've worked my way through all her books from the earliest to the latest. "Close" is her thirteenth novel and most recent blockbuster, hitting the shelves...

“Martina Cole - Close”

another cole classic

not as good as some of her previous work

Martina Cole - Close I couldn't wait to buy the new book from Martina Cole, Close and even though I cant stand to read hardback books, when I saw it in Tesco's for a discounted price I snapped it up and rushed home with a big bar of chocolate to begin the read. Unlike most Cole books this...

“Martina Cole - Close”

published 01/04/2012

Interesting read, engaging

Repetitive

I enjoy the crime-thriller genre and always thoroughly enjoy Martina Cole's books. Close did not disappoint. The story begins with a young lady (Lil) struggling with life in general - home and work both burdening her life she seems to have no prospects or future until she meets Patrick Brodie...

None

Easy read

Have read all of Martina Cole's previous books and could not wait to get my hands on her latest one "Close" - however I have found it very hard to get into and no where near as good as her previous books. It was very slow to start and much has been repeated throughout the different chapters...

Not for me

I was bought as a gift

It was an awful book

I was so looking forward to reading this book, it appeared on best seller listings and the author recommended by friends. I am sorry to say the book did not live up to my expectations. I was frankly taken aback by the foul language, I found myself trying to read the book by missing out the swear...
