      Well worth the read

      The 50s styled cover of this book had previously caught my eye but something about the blurb on the back cover put me off. Another book about a hot summer and a pivotal moment? I was wrong to be so sniffy. This was a compelling read. I really enjoyed the sense of time and place. Liza Klausmann made me feel the summer heat and her vivid use of colour made me believe I was watching a film in Technicolor. Apart, that is, from the London in wartime section which appropriately enough was more subdued. The story of two cousins and their relationship with each other and their respective families starts just after the Second World War and continues until the end of the 60s. We see the same series of events from the different perspective of each of the five main characters and as the book progressed and the characters became more familiar I was intrigued as to how the same events would be interpreted by each of them. Although it is a book about a murder and potential murderer, the author shows us the frailty and complexity of relationships with real emotional intelligence and it was this aspect of the novel that lingers.
