Colorado-based mystery novel – quite good

Girl in Snow: A Novel - Danya Kukafka

 

 

Based in a small town in Colorado, this novel deals with the murder of a high-school student, Lucinda, and the investigation into her death seen through the eyes of three narrators: Cameron, a student with developmental problems, Jade, a high school loner, and Russ, a policeman assisting with the investigation. ~With an interesting surprise at the end, it's reasonably interesting but I found the language a bit too affected in places. Characters are well-developed and murder, adultery, abuse all come into the plot.

 

Quite good therefore but certainly not a favourite of mine.

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
