Broken Grace

Broken Grace - E.C. Diskin Illogical mishmash

Advice is often given to writers to write what they know. Writers should at least be versed in subjects they undertake. If, for example, you chose to have a pedophile as a character, you should at the very least have some sense of the characteristics of pedophiles. What perhaps bothered me most about Broken Grace was the lack of any sense of authority or command in the authors writer: not in her police details, not in her characters, and not in her understanding of pedophilia. This lack of command makes for a very weak book, and one lacking in a sense of truth. The final twist felt like a gotcha.
And whatever happened to the father in this story?
Lots of material, lots of interesting material, just Avery weak weave.
