This is a sad review to write because Ania Ahlborn is clearly a very talented author. Anyone who could pull BROTHER out of their brain is clearly a twisted genius with a sadistic joy for good storytelling. I would LOVE to sit down with the author and hear how she came up with that gem, which still traumatizes me to this day.
Sadly, DARK ACROSS THE BAY was not that book. BROTHER fairly popped off its pages, but this book felt flat. There were too many characters thrown in my face all at once before I'd been given proper time to care about them. This ended up feeling like a very generic sort of airport thriller as a result.
I'd read more from this author but I can't personally recommend this book. However, if you're a fan of the domestic sort of thriller and found BROTHER too dark for your tastes, you may enjoy this one.
Thanks to Heather for trying to BR this with me.
1.5 to 2 out of 5 stars
