I don’t want to write a full review of <a href=”https://kimberlyhirsh.com/2022/01/02/finished-reading-truly.html" class=”u-in-reply-to h-cite">Truly Devious but I want to share a couple things.

First: it goes back and forth between details of a cold case from 1936 and the present. I love the way it weaves these two related stories together.

Second: it ends on a cliffhanger, which left me wanting to scream “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” and also simultaneously flail with delight, so well done Maureen Johnson, I guess.

Recommended if you like mysteries, especially dark academia.
