This book won the same award as “The Dry” by Jane Harper (Another Great Book). This book has great, original characters (even if you don’t like them), a world that I knew very little about and a mystery that will keep you guessing. I thought I had it all figured out only to find that the author had cleverly gone off in another direction. An interesting and different mystery.
