mystery in her past which is intriguing and will be addressed in future novels Iin her past which is intriguing and will be addressed in future novels I the other hand I very much liked the plot I think much of the detail of Finn s investigation is very realistic the difficulty of pursuing historical rape allegations the painstaking piecing together of snippets of information and the attitude of the perpetrator He maybe takes it a bit far but it s fiction and it adds a certain frisson and sense of urgency to proceedings The historical nature of the crime means that necessarily the novel is slow to start as Finn is starting with less than nothing not even a victim but the way she
builds her case is intriguing and compulsiveDarkest Truth is a good read which I have noher case is intriguing and compulsiveDarkest Truth is a good read which I have no in recommending WOW That is all I can say This book is so clever and the mystery is gripping It took twists and turns that I never expected to happen From nobody believing Finn to it all unravellinghonestly I want to read The ending was amazing I was hooked I didn t expect it at all elements of it I did but what actually happened was honestly shocking If you have not read this book you really need to it will keep you wanting and on the edge of your seatIt might take you longer to read because it is complicated but in a good way Take a while to read each chapter and take in all of the information because it will help to make everything make sense It takes time but my god was it worth itI am now hooked on this genre I will be looking into Kirwan because I love her style MUST READ This my first book by Catherine Kirwin and I enjoyed it I recommend this boo.
