This book is brilliant.
There's a girl who was adopted by generous middle-class liberals, and she finds out that her real parents were rapists and murderers, and that her real mother is about to be released from prison, and decides to spend the summer living with her.
There's a man whose daughter was raped and murdered and who wants to get revenge.
The balance and psychology of this book is absolutely stunning. I was deeply impressed and couldn't put it down.
This is streets ahead of the rest of James.
