Prepare yourself for an emotional roller-coaster
on 9 September 2014
A great book that you just don't want to put down until you get to the end, a cliché I know, but that's the best way to describe this book. From the start you should brace yourself though, for the reader is thrown straight into the unpleasant murder scene, as told through the account of the victim's mother. From that point on I found myself heavily invested in the book, wanting to put the book down at times to take a breather, but the writing is so good and the tension so palpable, all I could do was to keep reading. This certainly isn't a light read, it's emotionally draining, but the way Staincliffe handled the subject matter is admirable and so believable that by the end you feel like you've been through the loss, grief, anger and finally, acceptance, yourself. A truly wonderful book, that though not fluffy, will certainly keep you enthralled to the end.
