It was the murder that shocked the nation. Thirty years ago, Kate Rokesmith went walking by the river with her young son. She never came home. For three decades her case file has lain, unsolved, in the corner of an attic - until Stella Darnell, daughter of Detective Chief Superintendent Darnell, starts to clear out her father's house after his death.

I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
A very unique perspective. I enjoyed the story and the narrator. Amateur detectives usually devolve into extreme caricatures, not so in this case. This was not a jam packed thriller, but more a slow build with a natural and inevitable end.
Probably not, unless it got rave reviews--as for the author. Paul Ansdell is good.
The book seemed to be demonstrations of creative writing essays which were accomplished but not relevant to the story of this book. The book has an absurdly long intro/background--through chapter 12, much of which really didn't advance the plot or character development. I wondered if the book was really a cobbled-together combination of short pieces written, as I said, for a creative writing class.
I actually didn't like any of the characters except the dead detective. Sarah seemed to be off her trolley for no good reason that I could determine.
Barely, but I made it through.
