A harrowing, sometimes quite sad, crime novel that is impeccably written. This is not a twisty, fly-through-the pages read, but a slow-burning, character-driven suspense with a pervading sense of menace and a disquieting sense of unease that builds to a thrilling end.
The story follows Beatrice, who’s returned from New York to London to find her pregnant, missing sister, Tess. When Tess’s body is discovered in a park bathroom, she’s determined to find out what really happened, refusing to believe the police’s official line of suicide. What follows is an emotional, desperately sad story of a sister’s heartrending loss as she embarks on a journey to discover the truth, no matter the cost.
A beautiful story from a very talented author. I highly recommend.
