Review of "Until it's Over - Nicci French"
I just love writing and getting any feed back so I can improve. Its been good for me to write as I am recovering from a stroke and had times it has been difficult to write now much easier. Thankyou for all the rates and comments
This is the second novel which I have read by this Husband/Wife team Nicci French.
It is another crime psychological thriller and it is a book which you will not be able to put down.
Then I read on and started to get to know the other characters of the book Astrid's housemates.Miles who owns the house came back that eveing and broke some shattering news that he asked them all to leave because his girlfriend called Leah and himself decided to live together . After the bad news about the fact that they had to move certain things happen. particularly to Astrid. Was she the one that murdered Margaret Farrell who left the car door open and caused the accident of Astrid falling off her bike, then she collecting a parcel from a very wealthy lady and when Astrid arrives there discovers after no one came to the door. Astrid then peered into the letterbox and discovered a body lying on the floor.
The police then got involved after the first murder of the lady who had caused the accident of Astrid who collided into the car door while she was riding her bike.
This was only the start of a living nightmare for the housemates.
There was a new arrival to the house was he the person he said he was he did seem to fit in but was that an acted.
The relationships with all.the characters in the house and how they are with each other and their sadness when they had to leave the house. You could feel their sadness in parting as you read.
This is a well written crime story keeping you in suspense in who actually did the murders right to the end.
Product Information : Until it's Over - Nicci French
Manufacturer's product descriptionAmazon.co.ukWhat a pleasure it is to be in the capable hands of the husband-and-wife duo who jointly write as Nicci French. Their new book, Until It's Over, is a salutary reminder just how accomplished Nicci Gerrard and Sean French are at turning out sophisticated and disturbing psychological thrillers.The protagonist of the new book is a young and very fit London cycle courier Astrid Bell, who suddenly seems to be bad news for those around her. When her neighbour Peggy Farrell inadvertently knocks Astrid from her bike, Peggy is subsequently found in an alley, savagely beaten to death. Astrid is assigned to collect a package from a well-heeled women by the name of Ingrid de Soto -- but when she arrives, Astrid discovers her in the hallway of her home, also murdered. Needless to say, the police -- not great believers in coincidence -- begin to take a very close interest in Astrid, and soon life for her and her housemates begins to turn very unpleasant, with internecine squabbling (and a burgeoning apprehension about who is to die next) poisoning once friendly relationships.The slow and inexorable breakdown in the natural order of things is meat and drink to Nicci French, and the lengthening list of strongly written crime novels has acquired another winner with Until It's Over. It's particularly commendable that French resolutely avoids the temptation to write about a series detective. Powerful stand-alone narratives with ordinary people at the centre are the hallmarks of a Nicci French novel -- long may they remain so.
