“Exhausted by everything. Tired of his studies, of friends that were no more than acquaintances, of the effort of opening his eyes every morning and shutting them every night. Of life in general. The fog had grown so thick, he’d become used to navigating his days half-blind.”
This Australian murder mystery focuses on two women who lost their lives more than a decade apart. It highlights Kieran and his family, with a group of childhood friends, now grown up but still living near him.

I did not know who the murderer was until the very end.
