Really a 1-star but have to give it 2 since I never considered not finishing because I wanted to see how it all turned out. And if an author can achieve that, it's not fair if I totally pan the book. I had lots of hopes for this thriller based on recs from other readers, but it's really a pretty junky, poorly written mess. I don't read thrillers for their depth or realism, but a good psychological thriller doesn't require the utter suspension of disbelief that this did. And my reward for finishing was a ludicrous, laughable ending. Oh, well.
