This is the story of 2 friends Nick and Katie who grew up together in the 1980s. When they were in Kenya with their parents and Nicks brother something terrible happened.
Jump 30 years later and the truth is slowly coming to light.
The book jumps back and forth from past to present day. Set in Kenya and Ireland this is a story of deep friendship and sadness.
I did enjoy this book it was well written. ( )

This had a good plot, hooking the reader earlier on with a glimpse of sinister events way back in the characters' past, but never felt as though I got to know any of the characters, much less feel any liking for them. I could barely picture them. There is a character floating about somewhere called Karl and I'm still not sure, having finished the novel, exactly who he was.

There is skill in the way secrets are held back and gradually revealed - even when what appears to be a total explanation is offered just over halfway in , you have a suspicion there will be more to it, and so it turns out. So, top marks for story structure, not so blown away by the characterisation. ( )
