Journal Entry 1 by Cinderess on Tuesday, June 2, 2020



This book was so bitty and disjointed with a lot of characters and to-ing and fro-ing from past to present it was hard to get into. Plus considering it’s a Karen Pirie series she didn’t seem make an appearance until I was beginning to wonder where she actually was!

It was obvious ‘who-dunnit’ from early on.

The ending is really sad, though not unexpected; Karen is one of those characters who you just know was not going to get a particularly happy personal life. I was surprised upon starting this book that she and Phil had stayed together and were living happily. I wondered if in the next book if Phil and River might get together given that they were getting on so well, but it turns out to be one of McDermid’s red herrings. Karen’s career however will no doubt go from strength to strength…
