The title and cover, a woman walking away from an explosion with a shovel in her hand, lured me into trying the first few chapters and I was reluctant to put it down afterwards. The novel unfolds at the beginning of a road trip three siblings must drag themselves through in order to receive their dead grandfather’s inheritance. Except this isn’t a normal road trip, it’s a replica of one they took with their grandpa as children. Now grown and estranged, his final wishes force them into close proximity to dredge through a past none of them want to remember. I felt like I was on the drive with them and rode along saturated in suspense as the novel made its way to the close. If you like mystery, you’ll find this book full of twists and hard to walk away from!
