Review by: David Blake on Oct. 06, 2012 :
This story started well enough, although in the text (which is written from Naomi's viewpoint) Sam McGee's name appears out of nowhere, we're not informed that Naomi already knows it, nor does he tell it to her. But McGee's initial interview with Naomi was a good device to give the reader a lot of background detail on Naomi without it seeming forced.
Clues tip us off that Naomi is harbouring some secret, which builds up the suspense, but when I found out what the secret actually was I felt let down as it didn't seem to be the sort of thing a person would need to keep secret - quite the opposite, in fact. I also got totally confused over one aspect of the ending and had to re-read it, but I can't go into more detail on that without spoiling the story for other readers.
