Getting the news that your entire family has been found dead in a hotel in Mexico is up there as a "worst experience ever". But what if your older brother, and the only remaining family member you have, is a convicted killer? And what if it's possible that he was wrongly convicted? Matt in no way has an enviable life. But here is where we start our story.
I really enjoyed this book. The different characters and perspectives, the jumps back and forth in time. I loved reading the backstory of the Pine family and how they ended up in Mexico in the first place. This book REALLY keeps you guessing right up until the end. I read A LOT of books like this and can honestly say that it's the rare one where I'm 80% of the way in and have NO IDEA where it's going. Over all, I thought it was a fantastic book, a spectacular debut, and I cannot wait to see what else Alex Finlay has up his (her?) sleeve.
