Bitter Nothings has all of these qualities which leaves me feeling that I don't have anything new to say (other than "buy this book, you'll like it"). So, buy this book, you'll like it.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
Dervla (I always liked that Irish name) John's family is massacred and her father is blamed, but when he too is murdered, the plot takes a deeper turn. I do not give spoilers so suffice to say, this novel is well worth the time to read it.
It was a refreshing change to read a novel set in Melbourne, a city which I like but do not know particularly well.
It’s dark and shocking and very hard to put down. Murder mysteries can at times be very formulaic, but this book had me guessing right up to the reveal. The tension builds gradually because Tyley develops strong characters that are flawed human beings which make their motives, relationships and the impact of certain events on their lives all the more believable. As you invest in the cast of the book, as a reader you become determined to ride out the mystery – not because you want to know ‘whodunnit’ but because you find yourself wanting to know ‘why’ it was done.
Based in a very ‘modern’ society reflecting today’s families and values this story doesn’t stray too far into fantasy land which means it has a very real edge to the writing.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Vicki Tyley has mastered the knack of misdirecting the reader, so the denouement always comes as a complete surprise - even if you know her style, and try to double-guess. This is what makes her so readable.
The themes of mistrust, miscommunication and misunderstanding tie this story together in a most satisfying way. Highly enjoyable and recommended for anyone who likes a not-so-cosy mystery.
