classic dark English murder mystery set in late nineties
on 3 June 1999
Good atmosphere, Doughty gets inside the heads of various self-absorbed women, including the teenager at the heart of the mystery. I enjoyed it whilst reading it, but although I only finished it two days ago, much has already evaporated, hence only 3 crowns. Books like this should stay with you and make you think. Also, I could find no reason in the text for the title. Worth reading but not as substantial as the subject matter might suggest.
