MY REVIEW

Oh my!! A dark gritty family drama about 3 unlikable brothers and one died and lay in the coffin. Who was he and how did he die?

Having read a book prior to this, I was sure the author would rock my world with suspense and twists. What I didn’t expect was how much I would hate the brothers. They really did mean, nasty things to each other.

The story moved on as the reality was unfurled, and I got to know the truth. The author’s writing was flawless, the characters terribly flawed. Overall, it was entertaining, but quite dark.

MY RATIN

Rating: 4 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

This story begins with a funeral. One of three brothers is dead, mourned by his siblings. But which one? And how? And, most importantly: why?William, Brian, and Luke are each born a year apart in a lower middle class Catholic family in 1960s Dublin. William, the eldest, rises to the top of the heap in the film industry as a successful movie producer. Luke, the baby of the family, surprises everyone by morphing into a worldwide pop star. Brian, the compliant middle son, is the eternal adult in the room: the helpful, steady one, the manager of finances and careers.But none of them is actually quite what he seems. Wounded by childhood, they have betrayed one another in myriad ways, hiding behind little lies that have developed into full blown treachery. With an unnerving eye for the complexities of families, Nugent delves into the secret life of a deeply troubled household and provides stunning insights into the many forces that shape us from childhood.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

    1. Wowza… I can’t seem to go to dark in this year, give me a family drama, murder must, psych thriller, my brain seems more at peace.

      It is amazing how a pandemic can change things and viewpoints. Until I saw it in myself, I wouldn’t have believed it
