If Looks Could Kill – Olivia Kiernan
The last time I read a book in one day it was several years ago and I was on a six-hour flight (with Jennifer Egan’s brilliant ‘A Visit from the Goon Squad’). Just did it again because there was no way I was going to wait until the next day to find out what was going on in Frankie Sheehan’s latest case.
From the opening chapter–which you park, knowing it’s going to swing into play at some point and that will be a delicious moment–to the final page, you’re deep in Sheehan’s world and the plot twists hit early and keep going.
Once again, excellent taut writing and multi-layered characters give depth to a satisfyingly complex plot. Superb–best crime fiction out there.
