The story begins with a horrific crime, and it takes the entire (short) novel to unwind the whole truth about why the oh. so. handsome. Oliver beat his wife into a coma. (no spoiler here)......Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I was totally engaged by the way Liz Nugent set the stage and lay out her facts describing how Oliver turned out to be a monster.
As we meet all the players in his life, we find Oliver did endure some tough times as a youngster, and does discover a shocking truth as he grows older, but all of what he does to others does not excuse his deceitful, cruel and just plain nasty actions.
Interesting characters. (loved Eugene) Interesting story. Enjoyed it!
