Fresh Fiction Review

A Slow Fire Burning
Paula Hawkins

Reviewed by Evie Harris

Thriller Psychological | Women's Fiction Psychological

All we know for certain is that a young man has been murdered and there is no shortage of suspects.  Three of them have connections to the victim and all are victims themselves, not all of their own doing.

This suspenseful story oozes with tension in all the right places.  Readers are kept engaged with fast paced developments.  There is no end to the horrifying series of events, both before and after the murder.  The carefully crafted characters are a flawed lot and it is easy to imagine that any one of them is capable of murder.  But which one?  Or was it someone else?

The author expertly balances emotional turmoil, sense of loss and mystery.  Added to the mix are revenge and deceit.  It all comes together in this masterfully crafted hauting psychological thriller.  Highly recommended.

The scorching new thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train.
“A Slow Fire Burning twists and turns like a great thriller should, but it's also deep, intelligent and intensely human.” – Lee Child

“Only a clairvoyant could anticipate the book’s ending” – New York Times
With the same propulsion that captivated millions of readers worldwide in The Girl on the Train and Into the Water, Paula Hawkins unfurls a gripping, twisting story of deceit, murder, and revenge.

When a young man is found gruesomely murdered in a London houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. Laura is the troubled one-night-stand last seen in the victim’s home. Carla is his grief-stricken aunt, already mourning the recent death of yet another family member. And Miriam is the nosy neighbor clearly keeping secrets from the police. Three women with separate connections to the victim. Three women who are – for different reasons – simmering with resentment. Who are, whether they know it or not, burning to right the wrongs done to them. When it comes to revenge, even good people might be capable of terrible deeds. How far might any one of them go to find peace? How long can secrets smolder before they explode into flame?
