Not as good as other Waters adaptations
- Affinity review by CP Customer
This tale has lots of emotional angst with little of the sassy zip to be found in some of Water's other female characters to bring the energy up. Although the shady worlds of seances and women's prisons exercise a kind of voyeuristic fascination so provide an interesting setting for the story there just wasn't enough in the medium's character for me to understand why our heroine fell for her. The plot's final twist is a shocker, but overall I just wasn't convinced.
