I was very excited to listen to this book but found the jumping around of data too much. This is as muchof a problem for me as the story was good. Someone recommended writing a synopsis which defeats listening!

To be honest I found this a bit of a mess, there were just far too many switches in narrative to characters that I just did not care about. There were also ambiguous references to timelines that meant is was often impossible to know exactly which period the current passage referred to.
In the end it became one of those books that I just wanted to be over rather than wanting it to continue for ever which probably says all you need to know.
What a great read - couldn't tear myself away.
The book tells the events leading up to a mass shooting at a local hospital through the eyes of various different characters involved in the incident. I loved Kavanagh's characterisations - her protagonists were real and believable as their motives and interpersonal relationships unfolded. I felt I could have kept reading to see how some of them fared and was sad when it ended.
I listened to the audio version of this book and despite the jumping timeline and the different POV's had no trouble following the story.
One of my favourites this year so far - will have to read more from this author.
