This novel surprised me, in a good way – I wasn’t too sure what to expect from it, and so I suppose my expectations were relatively low, but whilst I wasn’t exactly mind-blown, I did get a lot of enjoyment from it.
It follows the story of a married couple who are struggling to deal with the loss of their son when a familiar face from the past emerges and starts to cause all sorts of trouble. That gives a lot of potential scope to the story, and that’s a good thing – there are so many different directions that McCluskey could take it in that you’re always guessing and engaging with the story line.
It’s a relatively quick read, but in a good way – I thought it was just the right length to get the point across, not too short and not too long and the sort of book that you could easily read during your commute. What’s not to like about books like this?
