‘There was never a good time for Death to visit. There was never a time when Grief would leave.’
Jaime Jo Wright’s debut novel a few years ago was a wonderful book and I determined to follow her and eagerly anticipated each novel. Her trademark dual time line novels are like reading two books at once. She is quite good at weaving these two stories together, while at the same time, creating very mysterious plots.
This time around, the story takes place in 1946 and the present day. A gruesome murder has taken place and never solved, while in the present day, the murder seems to be at the very heart of the plot and it is life changing for those involved. Watching how Wright unfolds her stories is incredibly interesting and quickly draws the reader in. Recommended.
