Nora is travelling to Oxford from London to spend some time with her sister Rachel. She is full of the excitement of her future, having just received news of an art residency in France for 12wks. She is also filed with happy memories of the time the had a Cornish let for Christmas. When Rachel is not at Winshaw train station to collect her, she is not alarmed. But nothing could have prepared her for what she is about to stumble across.
Nora discovers the violent scene of Rachel’s murder. It is a scene that will come to haunt her every waking moment and compel her to solve the murder. With DI Moretti, Nora works over Rachel’s past. Her ex Stephen Bailey who lives in Dorset, her occupation as a nurse. And the attack that Rachel endured at just 17yrs, with Yorkshire police refusing to believe an assault took place. But before Nora can settle on a theory, she is about to uncover Rachel was exhibiting some odd behaviour of her own.
Nora remains at Oxford and attempts to mix in amongst the locals. But Nora is becoming more and more obsessed…
‘I might have just met her murderer’ – Nora
A very clever ending 4*
Eventually, her understanding of her sister's past and present leads her to the murderer in a solution which is clever and unexpected, if a bit rushed. This is more than a standard crime novel and I look forward to reading the next book from this author.
Too many two dimensional characters.
Plot ok, but I kept thinking/hoping something unexpected would occur; it did not.
Not awful, but not as good as previous reviews had made me anticipate.
