"Rigbey's prose is smooth." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is a book to savour." (Guardian)
"A well-nigh perfect crime novel." (Booklist)
"Wholly absorbing with a shock denouement." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Very gripping, taut with memories." (Sunday Mirror)
"[A] journey of self-discovery...punctuated by sudden, chilly surges of tension." (Independent)
Although listed in the 'mystery and thrillers' section I think that it should be in the general fiction section. The murders are largely incidental until the end. The story seems to be more about how the main character deals with the situation rather than finding out who committed the murders.
Another thing I found annoying was the narrator's voice. At times she sounded like a petulant child and others like an adolescent boy trying to be a man. It was all a bit off-putting.
I listened to the end though as it wasn't a complete disaster - I mean, I did award it 3 stars.
