    Inhaltsangabe

    For rookie detective constable Fiona Griffiths, her first major investigation promises to be a tough initiation. A young woman and her six-year-old daughter have been found brutally murdered in a squalid flat, the single clue a platinum credit card belonging to a millionaire businessman who died in a plane crash six months before. For her fellow cops, it's just another case of a low-rent prostitute meeting the wrong kind of client and coming to a nasty end, but Fiona is convinced that the tragic lives and cruel deaths of this mother and daughter are part of a deeper, darker mystery.

    Fiona, however, has secrets of her own. She is still recovering from a crushing psychological breakdown, and the feelings that haunt her are constantly threatening to undermine the mask of normality she has learned to wear. As she begins to piece together a bizarre and terrifying conspiracy, Fiona finds that what makes her vulnerable also gives her a unique insight into the secrets of the dead, and in solving the murders she can begin to start solving the riddles of her own past.

    Haven't enjoyed a book this much in years

    Fiona is weird, complex, and you can't help but feel deeply connected to her. The mystery itself is fine, but what shines about this book is the many three dimensional characters and strange but relatable emotions and conversations they have.

    Not for me

    Too long, too slow, too boring at times. I liked the concept and Fiona being different, I noticed after a quarter that I could not wait for it to be over. Brilliantly read though. Maybe with a bit of time, I will look into the second book, but for now I have no appetite to continue.

    not sure what to make of it

    Fiona is special.
    I guess this pretty much sums it up in a diplomatic way.
    Very interesting: The way her mind works.
    Very annouying: The way she tends to act.

    The story itself is okay, the narrator is brilliant.

    Am I going to buy the next volume?
    Hm... can't decide...

    Außergewöhnlich

    Thanks for another very special character. Her autistic or Asperger like behaviour makes the plot an extraordinary one. Luckily the speaker matches this character in her voice, speaking speed and intonation. Well, the story itself partly moves a bit into the background, however, I look forward to Fiona Griffith's next case.
