Bodie Kane, who has a true crime podcast, has been invited to teach two intersession classes at the boarding school in New Hampshire where she attended. When she arrives there, memories of her student days are forever popping into her head. She cannot stop obsessing about a roommate’s murder, and the fact that an innocent man might have spent the last twenty three years in prison.
After thoroughly appreciating The Great Believers, I was really looking forward to Rebecca Makai’s newest novel. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It’s a book that can’t seem to decide if it’s a thriller, a me too novel of a coming of age read. Also, Bode’s narration is sometimes straight forward and other times a rant at the person she believes murdered her roommate. I found this format disruptive and a bit aggravating.
