Didn't stand up to 7 1/2 deaths

The story takes place on a remote Greek Island 90 years after the world ended. 3 scientists live here, on the last place unaffected by the fog, with the villagers that have been born on the Island since the end of days. When one of the scientists is murdered the defenses put in place to defend the Island begin to fail. What's worse, everyone's memories are missing from the night of the murder.

I was really excited to read this after reading and loving The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, but this was a bit of a miss for me. I had some trouble following the narrative as there were a lot of characters including an AI in their heads who all spoke simultaneously. The discovery of the villagers origins kind of lost me too.

I did appreciate the murder mystery nature of trying to determine what happened to the scientist and the reveal at the end, but I think I would've liked to think back and see the "twist" coming, there didn't seem to be many hints dropped about what was going to happen with the fog.
