Again, Flynn writes in a way that captures your attention and keeps it throughout. The beginning is slower moving as it sets the stage, but I appreciated it's character development.
The book is about a family who are the victims of a horrific crime. The story follows Libby Day, the lone survivor of a murder spree that killed her mother and two sisters. Her brother, Ben, was convicted of the crime and put in jail thanks to Libby's testimony when she was just a child.
The story goes back and forth in time (present day and day of the murders) and also person to person (Libby, Ben and Patty, their mom). I loved seeing the events of that day from various perspectives. It was a very engaging read to try to deduce who the murderer was and to try to put the pieces together as each chapter uncovered new information. I definitely recommend reading this book!
