It's just space and we all move through it.
A murder mystery and a tale of growing trust, or suspicion, of those around and how what is seen isn't always what it seems.
A body in the snow seen through the window of her apartment starts Claudia and room mate, Tom, on an investigation to find the killer when, after several months have elapsed, the police seem to be doing nothing. But they are no courageous sleuths: he is an artist waiting to be discovered, she is unemployed with time to gossip with the neighbours whilst hopelessly looking for work.
This delightful book is far stronger in it's characterisations and the antics of the mismatched couple than in the murder mystery itself. But the whole is very enjoyable and narrator, Cindy Piller, does on excellent job not only of reading the text but also of conveying the personalities involved.
A fun and easy read, I received my complimentary copy of Painting With Fire from the rights holder, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. I freely chose to leave this brief review.
