I probably have more questions than I normally have after finishing a mystery book. This novel left me in a state of an emotional emptiness. Because it was over. And because I wanted more. I am still thinking about the fateful intertwining of the destinies, questioning the happenstances and blaming the invidious circumstances. In other words – I am STILL emotionally loaded, isn’t it what books supposed to do?


I’m a sucker for mysteries set in the wild outdoors, gripping family sagas and stories that can’t be predicted from the opening pages. I have everything in this book. AND…THIS ENDING!
(In spite of the fact, that I would rather see another resolution of the whole case, but I appreciate the unusual twist here.)

A terrific debut novel (look at all these awards!), and a great audio book. Bravo!
