Reviews

Given that her high-school-based murder mysteries read like bingeworthy Netflix dramas, it's easy to see why queen of teen crime Karen McManus is a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic.

McManus keeps the juicy subplots ticking over and drip-feeds reveals as clinically as an IV tube.

Every twist is gasp-inducing.... Another McManus novel worth pulling an all-nighter for.

The twists come fast and furious.

McManus (One of Us Is Lying) once again crafts a taut, multilayered mystery. . .. [She] weaves past and present to take readers on a well-paced, twisty ride that will hold readers rapt till the last page.

A slow-burn, uneasy beginning ultimately makes way for a frantically paced end peppered with twists that genre fans will happily take in stride. . . . Fans of McManus' previous offerings and of mysteries steeped in family dramatics will be eager for this.

Curious About the Cousins and their Senas? Meet Uddhav and Raj Thackeray

They are first cousins twice over, but have had widely divergent political trajectories. One, an abrasive, fire-breathing demagogue, was seen as his uncle’s political heir whose behavioural traits he cultivated. The other, an introvert, is at his best when plotting strategies on the drawing board rather than the rough-and-tumble of street-corner politics that his party […]
