by Shirley F (Las Vegas,NV): I just love the way Jane Harper develops a plot, adds tension and suspense, and brings out important themes of friendship and community. The book begins with a mysterious disappearance of a baby’s mother, Kim. Her sneaker is found near a reservoir but there is no sign of Kim. The small community setting serves as a background to this mystery and another – an unsolved hit and run 6 yrs earlier, Harper develops a tight plot with multiple characters each with a distinct voice and personality. She expertly wove the 2 mysteries together, which kept me guessing – but the resolution (which came out of the subtle clues) made perfect sense and afforded me a satisfying conclusion. Thanks to Bookbrowse for an ARC- I really enjoyed reading about Aaron Falk and Greg Raco again (both characters from The Dry), and reading of their excellent work.
