This was my book group read for October and I probably wouldn’t have read it otherwise, but I’m really glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed it. I listened to the audiobook and I thought the narrator (Alana Kerr Collins) was brilliant – lovely Irish accent and great storytelling with her voice.
The book is set during the first Covid lockdown in Dublin – just reading about the characters’ reactions to the news stories and the deaths and the regulations being imposed that we all lived through over the last 18 months was surreal – so familiar and yet so odd.
It’s a murder mystery with lots of layers and twists and turns and interesting motivations and traumatic backstories. It kept me guessing for a while and I found the ending satisfying.
