The small town of Shelby is shaken when a man by the name of Etheridge was found beaten to death.
This was as usual a really good read from this author. Love the way she writes and the twists at the end.
I like all her books - plenty to keep you occupied by without the overt, senseless viloence that semms 'de rigeur' these days.
As usual, Ms. Green has given us another one of her famous mysteries. I find it quite interesting how she applies certain emotional characteristics that obviously was common for the time. When compared to the present time, this appears strange to me. Nothing can change the fact that she is an excellent author and has given us many twists to follow, which obviously keeps my attention.
I disliked it because I could not follow the writing. there are changes of rhythm, changes of style, too many to make reading the book an enjoying experience. I knew who the killer was from the first pages. This is not the first book I read from this author and I think she can write much better than what this one shows.
A good plot with twists. I had to re-read a few bits because of the style it was written in but it was an enjoyable book.
Got lost a few times in the beginning of the reading, for me it was difficult. Was not eye catching.
