Arie is dealing with the loss of his sister and he's found a good spot to relax. But even Arie is surprised by how well he fits. Duane finally has a chance but he understands time is limited. I appreciate that they have to work to find a solution that will work for each of them individually and as a couple.
I loved the sound of the violin music between each chapter.
Writing style: 1) It is like listening to an audio-described soap. Every action is described. He did this, he did that. It's frustratingly lacking any proper description. For example, there's a scene where they are having dinner. What did they eat? "Food" apparently but not one piece of information is given about the cuisine, the restaurant the mood of the restaurant. And it's like this all the way through. It's more like a story a 2 year old will write. "I went to the shop. I bought some crisps. I went home."
2) there is so much name dropping in this, that it's quite possible that around 10% of the book is people's names.
The narration is bad: it's quite fast (which in hindsight is a blessing to end it quicker). The accents were pretty basic but nothing to be intrigued about.
The plot: I suppose this might be considered pulp fiction but the plot is so simple. The part of the attempted murder could easily be stripped out without any affect on the story. I was unimpressed.
