The story starts off with a bang, well not a literal bang, but rather a triple murder. From there forward, it is one mystery after another. Loaded with twists and turns, the story centers on a number of interesting people in England who share connections to the murders at the beginning of the novel. Not all of them realize it at once.
The characters are interesting and believable. Each carries an emotional burden of some sort. Each copes in the best way possible for them. Collectively, they are survivors.
If you like a fast-paced thriller, this is the book for you. It’s the first I’ve read by Atkinson and I liked it a great deal. Thanks to my friend Joan for steering me towards it!
