This is my first Alafair Burke novel, and may I say it will not be my last! From page one there is drama and tension, and the story will bring change to your thinking on some issues.
When the teenage daughter of an influential family commits suicide, her mother refuses to believe it, and pressure is brought to bear as she demands a full investigation.
While this sounds a rather mundane plot, the author manages to bring it all together in a maelstrom of suspense, tragedy and triumph that far transcends the ordinary.
Ms. Burke's masterful handling of delicate issues, her controlled and well-defined plotting, along with some very realistic characterizations give Ms. Burke an edge on many of her contemporaries.
