Great plot, great narrator, but ruined, for me, by the far fetched notion that the police are incompetent; even failing to properly investigate one of the tragic events bestowed on this family, and the parents having to step in and save the day on the second major event.
Shame. This book had so much potential. It almost felt like the author didn't know what to do with the parents during the police investigations, so she had to put them front and centre, and leading the investigation themselves.
