I received a copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility. What a great read with enough twists and turns that make the “who did it” near impossible to detect until near the end. And even then, there are questions that are not answered until the last page is turned. Filled with both the best and worst of things people do to and with each other, each person encountered has a hand in the deception; implicitly or unknowingly. It starts with a dying man on Peyton’s kitchen floor, and quickly moves to a murder scene without a victim when she leaves the room to call for help. Told in multiple points of view, the one voice that never really clearly shows “why” they behave as they do left me wondering about whether or not there was just random craziness or there was a history of increased distance with reality. Weaving together multiple storylines with only the unknown dead man in common, the duplicity of his life is mirrored in the dual-storylines that follow his loved ones in two parts of the country. A successful story with a clever plot and even more clever writing that moved the action forward, even while in reminiscence, this is a great first novel from this author.
