Well,. A 3.5 really. Interesting, of course. But somehow not as powerful for me as his second book The Kind Worth Killing. nonetheless, would recommend if u are a adan if the genre though I could see the twist and predict it. But even so, read it once
I finished the book in only 2 sittings. This is one of the best thrillers I've read in 2018. . . Harry's only properly met his step-mother, Alice, for the first time after his father's death. But as soon as Harry returns to Maine, sinister things start happening around him. Was his father's death mere accident or murder? While Harry struggles to get at the bottom of things, his own life is in peril and he may have to save more than one life before coming face to face with the truth around his father's death. . . I love mysteries but I guess I love those kind more where the ending is cleverly concealed and the plot unpredictable. Swanson manages that superbly and that has made me enlist him in my choicest mystery writers. I look forward to reading more of his books.
