Description

Helen and George separately begin investigating the house's previous owners, and as construction accidents take a near deadly turn, and secrets start to become revealed, the couple realizes they are in terrible danger, and they can’t trust anyone—not even each other. By doing this, the author, Claire McGowan was able to add an exceedingly interesting element to the existing investigation that was taking place.

Upon arrival, Paula’s first job is to locate the missing 15-year-old girl, who happens to be the daughter of a real estate developer and a council member. A witch sliced her victim’s throat in the forest and somehow simultaneously murdered two girls miles away. I’m certain, with all her bajillion books, this author has heard that it’s preferable to show than to tell.We're pottering along, reveals are being revealed, and suddenly a gigantic sink hole opens up around the 75% mark and swallows up the plot and all logic. So mama dearest Janna has been in jail for a hot minute, and literally, and I mean LITERALLY, pops back up on the scene and au casually says "he needs oxygen!

According to McGowan, her first novel, The Fall was completely a surprise to her because when penning it down, she completely had no idea that she was working on a crime fiction novel. George is the ultimate Great Value narcissist (lacking the charm, cunning, and intelligence of a brand name narcissist) who decides his floundering "career" is more important than Helen's pay check and general wellbeing. Her unease only deepens after renovations begin, when the builders find sinister dolls hidden in the walls.

I even stayed up until the early hours of the morning, despite having to get up early for work the next day. Aiden’s father who was the editor and the owner of the newspaper was murdered because the IRA were not happy with the stories that he wrote. If you are a fan of unreliable narrators, multiple POVs and lots of little plot twists - give this one a go! When penning her first novel, McGowan was still in primary school, and she admits that the novel was not interesting at all. We always think we want to know secrets, but what we forget is that they come with their own weights, heavy as millstones, and if you aren’t careful this weight can crush you.

Apart from Paula, we are also introduced to other pivotal characters such as Paula’s boyfriend, Aiden who is in charge of the local newspaper. British Council complies with data protection law in the UK and laws in other countries that meet internationally accepted standards. There wasn't a big reveal at the end, so you already knew everything several chapters before the end.One might question Helen's decision to go along with the move without seeing the house or understanding what challenges awaited her. After finishing this I immediately put her full backlist on my TBR shelf, and I loved every minute of this twisty ride. I really enjoyed listening to all of the narrators, and the 3 for Helen, George, and Janna were especially fantastic. My favorite character in the entire book had to be Janna - the one who was arrested for murder at the beginning of the book. And then after everything, Helen just goes Helen Keller to his spending problem and still stands by him.

Some things I did enjoy: Janna's story was really interesting and I liked the healing/witchcraft bits. Because Paula understands that this is a small town, she believes the case that happened two years ago and the current one are completely unrelated. I love creative POVs, and this one is particularly interesting because it provides a perspective that is both impartial and biased, personal and detached. You have the right to ask for a copy of the information we hold on you, and the right to ask us to correct any inaccuracies in that information. Helen looks up the home’s history and discovers that the previous owner was rumored to be a witch and was put in prison for murdering three people.With that said, Paula is an exceedingly likable character, who made lots of mistakes, with Aiden O’Hara, the newspaper owner, and DI-Guy, her boss. The recent scandal of the Catholic Church and the IRA, form the basis of the investigation that the new team is overseeing.
