I would try another book by Val McDermid as the story jogged along quite well, although I had worked out the twist really early on. However, I found the narration a bit hurried.
the story being set in 2 time frames was good, particularly as the earliest time frame brought back many memories of my youth. the least interesting was that the reveal was pretty obvious very early on.
The narration sounded to hurried.
enjoyed lots of it a bit & bits of it a lot!
