If you are looking for a fast paced crime or thriller read then I would advise you to steer clear of Alexis Schaitkin's remarkable slow and considered character driven debut a tantalising acutely observed study of grief loss class race family privilege memory and obsession 18 year old American Alison Thomas is holidaying with her family her parents and 7 year old sister Claire on the fictional Caribbean island Saint X with its friendly locals staying at The Indigo Bay Resort The apparently confident beautiful athletic and flirtatious Alison goes missing only for her body to turn up on a beach later Two locals Clive Richardson and Edwin Hastie are arrested but with insufficient evidence they are released and the mystery of Alison's death remains a mystery through the yearsThe young Claire was close to Alison her lovely sister was everything she wanted to be she and her parents lives were left indelibly fractured and broken with the tragedy of what happened to Alison receiving intense media attention in the US The conseuences led to the family moving from New York to Pasadena California and in Claire's use of the name Emily Many years later in New York the 25 year old Claire coincidentally bumps into Clive She has never been able to forget and let go of her beloved sister haunted by her death so she follows Clive her desperate obsession driven by her need to know the truth and perhaps pertinently her desire to get to know who exactly Alison was As it soon becomes clear that there was far to Alison than her limited childhood memories had led her to believe Claire becomes disturbed by what she discoversSchaitkin writes a thought provoking novel beautifully written with heavy rich descriptions although there are occasional jarring notes essentially about the wide ranging repercussions on a surprisingly large number of people of Alison's death The effects of grief and loss run so deep in her family particularly the young Claire who grows up unable to ever get over losing her sister which in turn leads to the unforeseen conseuences later of her decision to enter Clive's life This is a compulsive read with themes that had me immersed in this impressive and memorable debut Many thanks to Pan Macmillan for an ARC

Did you ever wish something terrible would happen to you so the world could see how strong you are Alison was always the star of the family beautiful brilliant and absolutely perfect and Claire idolized herBut one Caribbean vacation on the island of Saint X later their family of four became a family of threeEven though Claire was only seven that memory was burned into her mind Their voices though still friendly on the surface have a coldness to them No she tells herself She is just imagining it Her sister's body was found washed up on the beach and Claire's life was forever changedAnd now that Claire is older and has moved out gotten the job and has checked off the hundred other adult things she should be doing she just can't let Alison go You can't bring the starsWhy notYou can't carry themI'll bring whatever I want And then one day Claire runs into Clive one of the men who was accused of killing her sister And right then and there Claire decides to NOT let this opportunity pass her by any longer The winter these nights this man it stretched on and on I could see no end in sight So I loved the premise of this one I think that was really really well done I thought Claire and the elusive Alison made an interesting set of characters You learn about Alison through interviews tapes and Claire's memories which then gives you an idea of who Claire truly isI was intrigued by Claire's mission to solve her sister's murder and when Clive came onto the page my pulse uickened And then just as uickly it went back to normal This is one of those books where early on you realize that you meandera lot And sometimes I absolutely LOVE that and makes the book one of my favoritesand sometimes it just doesn't work With thanks to the author and the publisher for a free copy in exchange for an honest reviewAll uotes come from an uncorrected proof and are subject to change upon publicationYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads
