Second one by French - I knew I had another book hiding somewhere. This is a great Summer read. You will carry it around with you and hope for time to read it. A great mystery but also a story about family. French can really convey selfishness in her main characters - you think you like them and then....maybe not. They might not be the real bad guys, but they aren't the nicest of people. I also loved the dialog in this book and wish I could incorporate "Jaysus" into my slang but I know I can't pull it off.
My only complaint was that the ending was a little long and the class theme was repeated a few too many times. I wonder if this is the work of editing. I wonder if today's books just don't receive as much editing. A few pages could have been cut and you would not have lost any of this story.
