Highly recommended debut novel.
The writing in this book is superb - in particular the sequences in the war-torn Balkans. I also loved the sense of place, evoked by the beautiful descriptions of the Yorkshire moors. The plot is well-paced, and the characters are believable and empathetic. I looked forward to returning to this book every night. Highly recommended.
But what is Jay's story? Why does he cry out at night in a foreign language?
Alison Layland skilfully drip-feeds us Jay's brutalising experience of the war in Yugoslavia two decades earlier. She conveys so well how war has a long tail. Jay is still struggling with issues of trust, betrayal and duty twenty years on.
This is an intelligent and engaging thriller and love story that drew me in and kept me guessing about what Jay would do. Highly recommended
