My thoughts…

I read this book in a day because I was that hooked and really wanted to unravel all the complicated twists and turns. I wasn’t disappointed. This is a debut novel from Catherine Cooper and everything about it from the title to the cover to the contents of the book is spot on.

The chill of the French Alps creeps through the pages as we alternate between the tragic events of 1998 and the current day. Catherine clearly plays on our assumptions of ‘who is who’ throughout this as well and that really adds to the twists and plot turns.

I wasn’t particularly endeared to any of the characters but I think that’s what made this book work for me. I disliked a good handful of them and that’s testament to Catherine’s character construction and portrayal.

Overall this is a brilliant read especially with the darker evenings upon us – a great mystery/thriller to lose yourself in for a few hours.
