St Andrews, un coin paisible d'Écosse. Cette nuit-là, pourtant, un cadavre atrocement mutilé y est découvert par une bande d'étudiants éméchés : celui de Rosie, barmaid. Ils alertent la police sans se douter que tout les accable : chacun d'eux n'avait-il pas un motif secret d'en vouloir à une fille aussi séduisante ? Faute de preuves, ils restent libres. Mais les frères de la victime, eux, sont bien décidés à les faire payer.

Et le temps n'y changera rien, même si, trente ans plus tard, de nouvelles techniques d'investigation permettent d'espérer que la justice aura enfin le dernier mot. Une seule solution : mener l'enquête soi-même. Quitte à affronter la folie d'un tueur.

I had a wonderful time, while also advancing -- though with decidedly fewer new reads than I'd origianlly been planning -- my two main reading goals for this year (classic crime fiction and books written by women). ...

2.0 Quatre garçons dans la nuit (The Distant Echo) by Val McDermid
Series: Inspector Karen Pirie #1 This book just felt long. We spent way too long in the 1970s when the original crime occurred, and it ended up feeling like wasted time because of the 25-year skip that happens almost 200 pages into it. Having finished the book, I can see why the author did it, but...

4.5 The Distant Echo
"He always liked the cemetery at dawn. Not because daybreak offered any promise of a fresh beginning, but because it was too early for there to be anyone else around. Even in the dead of winter, when the pale light was so late in coming, he could guarantee solitude. No prying eyes to wonder who he w...
