This is a great mystery for those who liked "Girl on the Train" and "Gone Girl". It's much better in our humble opinions.
This is not a new title but we thought we'd point it out now since Ms. Berry was just nominated for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel. This is a taut thriller set in the English countryside. When Nora makes one of her frequent trips to see her sister, a very different outcome greets her. Her sister has been murdered. She doesn't trust the police to track down the killer so she does it herself. This brings back a host of unwanted memories as she tries to find out what really happened. This is a real page-turner.— Nancy Usiak, employed by the Book Bin since 2009
