I so agree. Having read that and another of her books, I'm off her completely. If you want more mediocre writing, try Linda LaPlante who wrote Prime Suspect. I really liked the BBC series with Helen Mirren (did ya see The Long Good Friday?) and I got three LaPlante books and all became wall-bangers. Sometimes bad writing can't spoil a good story and good writing can have no story but LaPlante is piffle drivel. Just bad, bad, bad. So bad, that if you put it down and come back to it you've already lost interest and can't remember what's already happened.
