Book review and synopsis for A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins, a twisted mystery-slash-thriller of deceit, murder, and revenge.
By Paula Hawkins
From Dorie on Goodreads: “This is a very cerebral mystery so I wouldn’t recommend reading this after several glasses of wine, or whatever unless you reason better this way!! You will need to think, untangle story lines and understand this myriad cast of characters and convoluted but ultimately brilliantly written novel.”
From Tammy on Goodreads: “There is a murder because of course there is. Tenuous connections, deception, and betrayal embroil members of a family, a pitiable young woman, and a meddlesome middle-aged spinster in the investigation that ensues. Moving back and forth in time, the characters’ backstories are slowly revealed as Hawkins turns you every which way but loose. There is even a book within in a book. I was held breathless.”
From Janet on Goodreads: “While initially slow, Hawkins builds a web of unlikable characters that keep the plot twisting and turning until, like a runaway train, you crash into a fiery ending. A twisted tale of secrets, lies, resentments carried, revenge plotted, and culminating in murder… this thriller is sure to be a scorching end of summer treat.”
