"she skilfully adapts it to a contemporary British setting in which our obsessions with class and keeping up appearances are weaknesses ripe for exploitation."

Sharon Bolton’s I-know-what-you-did plot is a familiar one, reminiscent in particular of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. Yet she skilfully adapts it to a contemporary British setting in which our obsessions with class and keeping up appearances are weaknesses ripe for exploitation.
