What the Dead Know - Book Review

During my absence I also finished “What the Dead Know” by Laura Lippman.

It is a fictional mystery about two sisters who end up missing and how the lives of those connected unfold over time. “What the Dead Know” is a great story with an amazing twist; unfortunately the authors writing style prevents readers from really immersing themselves in the story.

The narrative skips characters and time on a random basis with no real warning besides the start of a new chapter. Once you get the characters figured out and a good handle on the time jumping the story is a good read. It holds your interest and keeps you guessing all the way through – just like a murder mystery should.
