As a result she couldn’t help herself getting into trouble with both employers and police and you really feel for her as she gets involved in a houseboat murder. This was a very dark story as a whole, and I don't even know that the murder mystery in itself was what I was most intrigued by; the characters however were another thing! She'd had that thought when she first realized who the boy was, but she'd not known how best to take advantage. In particular, Pike captures the melancholy of the widowed Irene, whose frail appearance and occasional mishaps prompt others to condescend and patronise rather than treat her as a sentient adult.

Intricately interwoven plots and subplots, propulsive twists and a neat finale, while it’s no The Girl On The Train, A Slow Fire Burning is a deliciously easy psycho drama to hungrily tear through. I love Paula Hawkins, and this is why - A Slow Fire Burning twists and turns like a great thriller should, but it's also deep, intelligent and intensely human . Read by the actor Rosamund Pike, it is set in the aftermath of a brutal stabbing and is told from multiple points of view.

She leaned forward, her forehead resting against the mirror so that she wouldn't have to look herself in the eye, only looking down was worse, because that way she could watch the blood ooze out of her, and it made her woozy, made her feel like she might throw up. One highlight is that the audio version I listened to was impeccably narrated by the brilliant actress Rosumund Pike. Tie-in all of these characters in a spellbinding, psychotic thriller and pick one out of the bunch narrowing it down into a guilty and not guilty pile, you will undoubtedly need to tear it down and restart with many surprising second guesses. But her newest thriller, A Slow Fire Burning, may be the one that haunts readers long after they’ve finished it.

The police are quite bamboozled and have to finally rely on an unexpected player to catch the killer.A Slow Fire Burning is another slow burn with a lot of characters but it is so well constructed that it is worth sticking with.

It’s a saying well-known to those recovering from destructive relationships, and it’s also the theme of the book. In the mix are abduction, plagiarism, a hit and run, a hidden graphic novel, pickpocketing, bullying, and so much guilt.Hawkins with her psychological, twisty thriller “Girl on the train”, I was so drawn into her story about complex, broken, unreliable characters. These are out main characters and they connect to each other in ways both predictable and unpredictable. The story is narrated in the POV of various characters with each of them elucidating their innocence. When a young man is found gruesomely murdered in a London houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. The story begins with a powerful image: A woman named Laura standing in her bathroom, “shaking uncontrollably, blood pulsing hot and steady from the cut to her arm.
