    Generally, a thriller is a novel that is tightly plotted, multi-layered and contains mystery and intrigue. And therein, I believe, lies the first issue that needs major consideration – the structure and plotting of the book. Despite the ‘switch’ conceit and the chapter titles, the narrative is in fact very loose and its direction seems quite random and arbitrary. One of the causes of this is that there is a lot of repetition. I lost count, for example, of the number of times the narrator tells us that Ricky is crucifying him financially, how she expects him to pay for fancy meals out, and how she always smokes his cigarettes. Ditto his reflections on Amanda and how it’s all her fault that he came to London in the first place. There are at least three sections of him describing how he always notices ankles first. It feels to the reader as if there is very little forward movement or progression, and very little sense of one thing leading to another.
