Plot & Pacing
Lucas joins a writer’s retreat to finally start his new book, where he becomes obsessed with the tragic past of the retreat’s owner, whose husband and daughter drowned in a river two years before. Quick pacing as Lucas delves into the mystery and gets himself and others into loads of trouble.
The danger of believing in stories without verifying their accuracy.
Very well written. A complicated and creepy mystery, told with dash of skepticism.
