READ & DOWNLOAD The Stranger Diaries: a completely addictive murder mystery REVIEW ¾ The Stranger Diaries: a completely addictive murder mystery A TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE YEAR THE RICHARD JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK Utterly bewitching a pitch perfect modern Gothic AJ FINN author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOWA dark story has been brought to terrifying life Can the ending be rewritten in timeThis is what the police know English teacher Clare Cassidys friend Ella has just been murdered Clare. Elly Griffiths is best known for her detective novels the Ruth Galloway series and the Stephens and Mephisto series and I m a big fan of both reviews here The Stranger Diaries however is a standalone mystery that although it does feature a police investigation reads to me like a psychological thrillerClaire Cassidy is writing a book about RM Holland a fictional writer of ghost stories think MR James best known for a short story called The Stranger She s also an English teacher at a secondary school which is partly located in what used to be Holland s house as someone who also went to an ordinary comprehensive school that was mostly ugly and modern but a small portion of which was an old mansion house I identified with this location uite strongly One day her friend and colleague Ella is murdered and at around the same time strange notes start to appear in Claire s diary Who is writing them how are they getting into the house and how are they connected to Ella s shocking deathAs well as Claire s point of view there are also portions of the story narrated by Georgie her teenage daughter who has secret creative writing ambitions of her own and by DS Harbinder Kaur the police officer assigned to the murder case The multiple points of view work well here One of my common complaints about the psychological thriller genre of late is how smugly affluent and middle class the protagonists seem to be and Claire is very much a character in that mould but the key thing here is that this is acknowledged often acerbically by the no nonsense HarbinderThe plot escalates gradually in this book which is strong on atmosphere and sense of place although when the mystery is actually solved at the end it feels a little rushed and a little explanation and exploration of motive might have helped in some ways the conclusion felt as if it came from a different sort of book There s also an additional element touched on by Harbinder when she recalls a terrifying incident she witnessed as a pupil at the school where Claire works that I d like to have seen developed as it is it feels like a slightly out of place add on However this novel is creepy and cleverly plotted with believable well observed characters and the story felt fresh and original It certainly did keep me turning the pages and as it s set in the approach to Christmas it s a particularly good read for a dark December night

READ & DOWNLOAD The Stranger Diaries: a completely addictive murder mystery REVIEW ¾ The Stranger Diaries: a completely addictive murder mystery Er life and her work They know her darkest secrets And they dont mean wellThis is what the killer knows Who will be next to dieCompelling intelligent and increasingly mesmerising PETER JAMESPicks up where the great Gothic thrillers of the past leave off goose bump spooky smart and haunting I loved this book And you will too LOUISE PENNY. I m not generally a fan of the Gothic genre but this book was enjoyable nonetheless The setting strong and atmospheric writing and the story within a story approach were intriguingas were the first person character voices all distinctive which can be hard to achieve These aspects outweighed some minor negatives the overlapping narratives within the story sometimes felt a little repetitive some aspects of the storyline and characters stretched credibility particularly with the policing aspects for DS Kaur but again the story was enjoyable intriguing and well written and overall was a pleasure to read
