I struggled to finish because there's too many chapters of suffering and not a lot of murder mystery.

At first, I put the (audio)book down, thinking it would be totally dark and depressing. I couldn't see how the main character could be anything but negative and dreary throughout the whole book, and with good reason, I certainly felt his anguish and pain.
One day, on a dog walk, I had finished another book and having nothing else left to read in my library, re-established my listening to this.
Thank goodness I did. The story goes from strength to strength, unravelling the lives of the characters and ending in a breathtaking finale. I have religious views like Will, I am even an artist just like him, and was totally on his side throughout the narrative. I had wondered about the identity of the killer and for once I was correct in my guesswork.
If like me you begin to read it and are not so sure, carry on, you will not be disappointed.
