This was a long book which was broken down into chapters told by each person involved in the killing of a child. I did think it was a bit drawn out but the descriptions of the areas were very good and you could almost see them. This goes along the lives of them all from children to adults and the effect everything has on them. Who else knows what they did and why is it coming out now? There is a twist at the end which I was not expecting and rather surprised by but it did all make sence then. Very well written with good strong characters that blend together well.
