I unfortunately felt let down by this book. I have read Beautiful Lies by Lisa Unger and loved it, however Black Out was a convoluted story that felt like it was going somewhere but never really got there. The characters were all a bit mysterious and hard to like, and there was an effort by the author to blend reality and imagination that fell rather flat. All in the entire story was rather frustrating. So I don’t recommend this one – however, Beautiful Lies is a great little crime novel so give that a go if you wish to try this author.
