really liked it
bookshelves: library-book

I read Stella Duffy's Saz Martin mysteries a few years back and my memory says they were pretty good (later I'll go and check what I actually said at the time, there are often discontinuities between my memory and reality) but I don't think I've read any of her other books since. This jumped off the library shelf into my hands and engaged me so much I read it in about 24 hours which is something I used to do all the time but rarely get to do any more (mostly I blame me and my life for that rather than the books). The story's about a woman, now grown up with children in the UK, who was adopted into a cult in America as a baby, and about how the past comes back to haunt her. In places it was a little predictable maybe but in the kind of "oh no, this is all going to go horribly wrong, can I read it with my eyes closed?" probably intentional sort of way. A good read for sure.
