The Malice Box – Martin Langfield

Cover
An interesting thriller which attempts to weave elements of science and the spiritual together. The flashbacks serve as a device to give backstory, and evlove the plot. There was no real attachment to the characters, and although there were a few pulse racing moments, I found it too predictable.

Ultimately this book may have tried to convey a message showing how clinical we, as humans, have become; but the lack of emotional attachment to the characters diluted the message until it was almost undetectable.

3/5
