This is a book about self redemption. A multi
generational look at a dysfunctional family who becomes embroiled in a murder is it's focus.
Caroline Masters, the main, protagonist is self contained, self created and self absorbed. She has taken pain and glorified it into a personality builder. Her estrangement from her family helps her to reinforce her aloofness.
The author forces Caroline to face her fears and her family when her niece is arrested. The family is portrayed in painstaking detail. The plot is intricate without being confusing. The author does a superior job at keeping key facts within reach but just out of sight.
This is an enjoyable mystery with personal redemption and developing self awareness as part of the mix.
I enjoyed the book and I recommend the book.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
