My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Karin Slaughter’s best!
No grave to mourn the missing Julia for sisters Lydia and Claire and mother Helen.
No sister to turn to in difficult times.
No father to help.
One sister enjoys a full life – with a loving husband and a rich relationship with her mother and grandmother. The other sister is ostracized, a single mother, struggling with everything.
Late one evening Claire’s full life begins a drastic change.
Slaughter gives us strong female characters – mother Helen is a delightful surprise, making me remember late in the novel why she’s so savvy, willing to help and up-to-date on technology: oh, yeah, she’s a librarian!
