Stunning - literally. By the end of this tale of shifting truths and multi-layered secrets, I was, as the Brits say, gob smacked. Toby Hennessy has always believed that he led a charmed life, but that was before he is savagely beaten and returns to the family home to recover and care for a dying uncle. His physical and mental injuries leave him weak, confused, and vulnerable. When a skeleton is discovered in a tree in the yard, things he ignored from the past begin to unravel his world. The story is like a Greek Tragedy with hubris and a devastating ending. Tana French does not disappoint.
