Ruby has plenty of nerve. She’s been convicted of murdering two neighbours in Hollow’s Edge, the close-knit, well-to-do, semirural community in the Carolinas where she lived. When the appeal court quashes the conviction, she heads straight back to the Hollow whether the other residents like it or not. Most of them don’t. But here’s the thing: if Ruby isn’t the killer, who is? It must be one of the other Hollow people. Or maybe a couple of them. Megan Miranda works through all the possibilities in a determined fashion. This may be the most orderly novel in recent crime fiction, but it’s the sort of orderliness that sets the readers up for a series of decidedly unexpected plot surprises with no cheating on the sleuthing.
