"[Suicide] is a passing impulse, a signal that change is needed. [...] I was in the afterwards, it was glorious, and a lot of people didn't make it here." p371
If I told you their names you'd think you know me. You don't. I'm not going to talk about that night at the hotel in Soho. I will not name the footballers. I will not specify which London club they played for. You can go elsewhere for all of that. pg. 177
SummaryAdd a Summary
Instagram made me do it. I was influenced to read Conviction by Reese Witherspoon and I checked it out from my public library. There is so much mystery and wittiness in the book and I just loved the relationship between the characters Anna and Fin! As an ESL reader the book was perfect for me to read. The vocabulary was rich and challenging yet it did not intimidate me.
Conviction is a fast paced mystery, a total page turner and one of those books that you just have to grant yourself five more minutes. Then the day is over and you read until your eyes can't stay open.
Anna McDonald is obsessed with reading and listening to true crime podcasts (who isn't). One early morning before her husband and her girls wake up she is listening to an episode about a murder mystery on a sunken yacht, The Dana. The doorbell rings, Anna opens the door and it's her best friend with a suit case. At that same time her husband is coming down the stairs also with a suitcase. He is leaving Anna for her best friend and he is taking the girls. He can't deal with Anna's strange personality. Anna has a history. Mystery #1!
To self medicate Anna continues to listen to the podcast and realizes that she knows the man who was murder on The Dana. To take her mind off her personal tragedy Anna takes it upon herself to solve the murder on The Dana by investigating and traveling all over Europe. Mystery #2!
I really enjoyed reading this book, I was completely invested in trying to solve the mystery before Anna and Fin did.
There is a Trigger Warning that I want to caution you about. I'm not sure if it would spoil the book so let me know if you want me to tell you what it is.
