Review: The Stranger You Know
The Stranger You Know by Jane Casey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Started this and the first chapter reads familiar, like I have already read it sometime ago. Looking at the previous read books by Jane Casey wether I read a preview, I did not find any for this book, strange feeling, or Casey is copying her own work somewhere... .
Reading on, no, after the first chapter or a few pages it is new to me.
Excellent twists, keept me guessing till near the end who would the killer. Although there is a bit of deux-ex-machina there in the final conclusions when all is explained. Could warrant a star less for some, a touch too neatly solved everything and they had no real evidence for some things, only guesses and unsolved cases with suspects.
Just a few romance-scenes, exactly measured, not too much, nothing distracing from the crimes and a side-story (beginning in the last books) is integrated with the romance and leads to some unexpected scenes and again ends with a nice, unexpected twist.
Real page-turner, highly recommended. Could just stop myself from buying and reading the next book in the series.
