Living with a secretive, mono-syllabic teenager isn't easy at the best of times, but when your teenager is then accused of unspeakable things and does very little to persuade you of his innocence, the tension in the story really heats up. It's a page turner which an ending which caught me out.
It's introspective so if you want an action packed crime thriller, look elsewhere. Small town America, a young girl goes missing and the novel follows the effect of the disappearance on the family of a prime suspect. The thread of reflective narration by an interested observer is intriguing and serves well to link characters and the past with current events. This is a detailed dissection of dysfunction in families. Superficially all is well, but scrape the surface and there's a different agenda, a different story and deep, dark secrets which cause implosion.
In a nutshell, I loved this. The prose is spare. Every word counts and I was drawn right in to the mystery of events and the surprising finale. Characters, plot, pace, language...it's all there. Compelling and totally absorbing and very rewarding.
