Review: The Back Road

The Back Road
The Back Road by Rachel Abbott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book. It differs from lots of crime stories as it doesn’t focus on an investigation by a detective. Instead the story starts to develop from a dinner party and develops from there to an unexpected conclusion. The story opens with a hit and run and the location of the incident (on the back road) would suggest that the killer lives at the local village since the road doesn’t go anywhere else.
I loved the way we found out something about each character in turn, all of which kept the plot twisting and turning as you try to work out who the hit and run driver is. I enjoyed the book so much I immediately ordered the next (and previous) book in the series.
