Realistic and well developed characters. Modern and timely storyline woven with all characters involved in twisting plot! 👍
Best book I have read this year!
Great story and characters, engaging and with a realistic feel that few books achieve, the reporters side of the story feels new and three dimensional, like the inner voices of some of the characters. It feels personal, a realistic exposure of crime we read about on papers with very little background or understanding of the devastation one act can incur on so many.
The story is sad and disturbing but presented with sensitivity and understanding that it is not voyeuristic of the crime or dismissive of the victim, it builds around her and the waves her loss brings to all involved. A true psychological thriller that deepens the empathy not the violence.
It represents the police and press in realistic way with no histrionics or romanticism and humanises a crime instead instead of the usual exploitive gore that is so prevalent.
This is one of the few books I could not put down and finished it in one sitting. A true finding.
The author second books does include some of the characters in this one, yes there is more coming soon.

When a book has such hype and so many rave reviews, you question your own judgment when you can't see what all the fuss was about. There was no suspense, no atmosphere, not much of anything really. And though the reader read clearly and well, she raced through it breathlessly in a way I found tiring to listen to.
