Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on December 3, 2022
I picked up this one on a whim; mostly cause I was in the mood for a thriller; and the blurb just caught my attention.
And I am so freaking glad that it did.

The Agathas is a Wild fast paced whodunnit mystery with two of the most unlikely detective partners that you just can’t help but binge read in one single sitting.

Alice, a popular girl, whose fall from grace makes her a pariah and Iris, an outcast and a nerd form an unlikely partnership when they both realise that their classmate’s death is not an accident at all. But it’s their slow progression into a true friendship that forms the actual foundation of this plot.

The twists and turns; the revelations will leave you absolutely gobsmacked - and yet the way the authors wrap up the mystery gives the reader a rare form of closure that many mystery - thrillers rarely do.

But does that mean we say goodbye to these wonderful characters?
I am so freaking excited to say that there is going to be a sequel coming out in 2023 and I. CANNOT. WAIT. 🤌🏼
