I don’t want to write a full review ofbut 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.
