Well unfortunately I felt the structure of the book let it down There are numerous scenes and characters excellent in themselves which feel extraneous Most of the plot strands don't go anywhere much The book ends with a turn of events which I will call dramatic rather than melodramatic as it's well prepared for but it leaves the characters up in the air unable to complete their arcs The result is a rather baggy unsatisfying novel which frustrated me because I felt it could have been so much better In fact I found myself trying to rewrite the plot never a good signview spoilerI felt the book would have been better for dropping the entire sub plot of Mrs Garrard and her husband It's well written but only exists to sweep Steven off the stage in the last chapter By contrast Nurse Lake's obsession with Steven is so powerful and well portrayed why not make her the murderer? She seems sanguine about his leaving the hospital but I could see her deciding that if she couldn't have him nobody could Or it could be she who deliberately tells Garrard where he is so that she can be a heroine and save the day not realising she hasn't got it in her hide spoiler
