Formulaic and uninteresting. The lead character, Jack, is pathetic and whiny at most. The story doesn't even go into the best parts of the plot, but rather focuses on uninteresting aspects, much like a bad movie on Lifetime.
While I thought the story was good, I couldn't get past the formulaic nature of the story. I was able to blow through this book pretty quickly as the plot and characters are all straightforward. Full review of the book is here: http://671books.net/fiction/the-final-silence/
Stuart Neville has to work hard to live up to his "Ghosts of Belfast," and this latest effort doesn't make it. Jack has become whiney and self-indulgent and the book repetitious. Everything is blamed on everyone else, including things under his control. He loves his daughter, just not enough to meet her basic needs and he seems to relish in is incompetence.
The plot is contrived, and the remedies miraculous. If only everyone else would take responsiblity for him.
Neville said in his Acknowledgements that certain people helped him get through a bad patch in writing the book and you just wish that he would have taken that extra six months or so to get it right himself.
