's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: australian-women-writers

I wasn't sure when reading this if it were the first or the second of a series - Buist constructs the back story of her forensic psychiatrist protagonist, Natalie King, so well, I sometimes had the impression she was referring to a previously published story. King's character and behaviour aren't always sympathetic, but they are well-motivated and believable. The book describes actions on the extreme end of the spectrum of human behaviour, making the novel not always comfortable to read, but the issues dealt with - and the world King inhabits - are fascinating.

Brenda It's the first in the series Lizzy :) Good review!

Lizzy Chandler Thanks, Brenda. I saw that when I finished, but I really hadn't been sure. Such a dense background. (Thought I'd knock off a couple early before getting back to my own writing.)

Brenda Good idea :)
