This is a follow-up to In the Woods, which I also liked very much. In this book, as in that one Ireland is itself a character, and a very complex one at that. The mystery lies in the way French knots the characters together and then works at picking that knot apart. The solution is really a moment in which we see the characters for who they are behind carefully constructed personas.
Cassie is a wonderful narrator, with a rich and vivid voice, beautifully rendered by Ms. O'Neill.
Make no mistake, this is a literary mystery for those who thrive on setting and characterization.
The end of the book is indeed missing. And the repeat of chapter 18 still there. Wish I had read the review in which this was disclosed before I bought the book, but you would think that over a year later the problem would be fixed. Reported it to Audible, and they said they would remove the book from my library and issue a credit. Too bad. Let's hope they rectify the problem
