I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I’ve seen tons of good reviews about this authors books. Glad you enjoyed reading it!

    1. Thanks, Lilyn. Yes, I was intrigued by the reviews as well. I share the review of The Dry next week. Well-worth it, for sure.

    Wow, you are toppling over my Kindle with your excellent recommendations Olga. Sounds like I must add this along with the first book. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. Yes, a new author worth knowing for sure. You might want to wait until next week, as I’m sharing the review of the first book on Monday. Have a great Tuesday.

        Well I shall wait! I’ve bookmarked this one already. 🙂

        1. It comes highly recommended, and they are not wrong. Have a great Valentine’s day.

            Thanks Olga. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too! 🙂

  3. Sounds interesting, though possibly derivative too. The different stories about one event, told to an investigator, immediately brought to mind the film ‘Rashomon’. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042876/
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I know Rashomon and a few of the different versions it’s had (I particularly enjoyed the Outrage, as I’ve always been quite partial to Paul Newman). You are right about the similarity in the structure, but it is quite different, as not all the stories are narrated to the investigators (who are not really there to strictly investigate the disappearance), but we do experience them with the characters as a second timeline (we are privy to more information than the investigators). And they don’t all have the same information (evidently). I share the review of the Dry next week. Jane Harper is a keeper, I think. I’ll say it this time. I think this could make a good movie (or a TV series). 🙂

      1. Thanks, Olga. I misunderstood the structure. Glad to hear you are enjoying her books. The chance of film adaptations looks very promising. 🙂

        1. I’m not sure I explained it clearly. I’d be surprised if they snatch the film or TV adaptation rights soon. Enjoy your Tuesday!

  4. Hmmm. I’m intrigued. I always enjoy your reviews, Olga. And when a review leaves me saying “hmmm” I think that’s a good thing. 😉 Have a terrific Tuesday. Hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. This is one of those books that one keeps thinking about long after finishing reading it.

  5. Another lovely review, Olga. It sounds like a really good storyline.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. It is for sure. Have a great day.
