Read full description of the books 贖罪 [Shokuzai]:Five ten year old friends go to, their school to play, only four will return alive. The mother of the girl who does not return, threatens the remaining girls, telling them that by the time the statute of limitations is expired on her daughter's murder, the remaining girls must either write a confession or perform an act of penance.
I read this author's novel Confession last year and found it intriguing, and really loved the insidious nature of evil it depicted . This premise sounded equally intriguing and it did start well, with the same creepy overtone but this is where the similarities ended. These novels are told in an very dispassionate voice, which adds to tension the scenarios provoke, and this one also duplicated that tone. Yet, the stories told by each girl were at times repetitious which is to be expected because many of the details of the murders were the same, but the stories about their lives after the crime and threat, went on too long, at least in my opinion. There were unusual revelations, surprising reveals but in the end found this at times very good and at times boring. So a very mixed read for me, but still a very different type of story.
ARC from Netgalley.
