A great thriller and much more . . .Reviewed in the United States on 8 March 2018
I love "The Burial Society!" It's a thriller with some surprising extras on relationships, and a refreshing cleverness throughout. After reading it, I listened to the audio version, which is well done and added a new dimension. Catherine's mission is running The Burial Society to save women from their abusers. There are some gritty scenes, a character with mental illness, and a peek at the raunchy underbelly of Paris. Short chapters make it easy to switch gears into the more domestic settings. My favorite parts are the insights about what makes the characters tick. The teen siblings, Natalie and Jake, whose mother went missing about a year ago, are realistically tough on the outside, yet have tender emotions. Their father Brian and Uncle Frank are brothers, whose childhoods were overshadowed by their mother losing a baby to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. There's a quirky bit about the nursing home where their mother lives being named "Meadowfield." Wonderful scene descriptions sprinkled with vivid details like savoring a piece of chocolate cake, made for a tight writing style that reminded me somewhat of "The Woman in the Window" by AJ Flinn. Parts of this book by Nina Sadowsky will stay with you after you turn the last page. "Her body aches. She realizes she has forgotten how physical grief can be." (Natalie) "Just because you have your own agenda, it doesn't mean you're not servicing someone else's." (from Catherine, who runs The Burial Society). Highly recommended read!

A great mystery/thriller combo!!!Reviewed in the United States on 19 October 2019
Catherine runs the Burial Society which is a group of people helping those in domestic violence situations disappear. In this story, Natalie discovers her father's dead body and can not process what happened. Catherine has a history with the family so she starts looking into what happened. The chapters are told in different characters perspectives which I thoroughly enjoyed. The ending was quite a shock for me! I'm looking forward to more stories with Catherine and her Burial Society!

Didn’t see that coming!Reviewed in the United States on 15 February 2018
The twists and turns in this story are amazing. Each time I thought I could predict an outcome, I was wrong. Not only did the story line keep me riveted, so did the writing style. I love the descriptions and the way scenes are layed out in vivid detail. Can’t wait for the next one!

less than thrilling thrillerReviewed in the United States on 19 April 2020
I don't like critiquing authors, writing well is hard work. One of my biases is chapters with different narrators, which is how this book is written. To me, it makes it harder to follow who's doing what when. I prefer the same narrative voice throughout. The protagonist, considering what her job is, seems weak and mistake prone. I wouldn't trust her to help me disappear.
WOW this isReviewed in the United States on 25 March 2018
An exciting read! I just discovered author M Sadowsky and I'm so happy I did. I totally love The Burial Society what a brilliant mind. I'm off to read Just Fall...
