But that doesn't mean that the other characters aren't fully developed, most especially two of the police detectives who have to deal with Alan the most.
It's hard to believe that this is a debut novel. Ramsay's writing is remarkably assured; it seems as if this could be her tenth book rather than her first.
She's excelled in each of the main writing elements of plot, characterization, pace, dialog and setting. I haven't had a reaction like this to a first book since Black Dog by Stephen Booth. Given how much I liked this book, you may be wondering why I did not assign it the highest rating, 5 quills.
Some parts of the characterization such as Alan's undying love for a woman he didn't really know and his wife's unwavering acceptance of his eccentricities weren't plausible to me; and the killer seemed obvious. However, I do feel that the book merits more than 4. So do me a favor—take your pen and add a few more lines to the last quill until it almost reaches the top.

Absolution Novel Suspense by Caro Ramsay
The only content we will consider removing is spam, slanderous attacks on other members, or extremely offensive content eg. We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or being critical of a particular book. Welcome back. The face of another woman, though-a strikingly beautiful young woman, blonde-has taken hold of McAlpine's consciousness, and soon the consequences of a case cold for two decades are commanding-and dangerously thwarting-the course of his team's current, already desperate investigation.
As crimes in the present intersect with iniquities committed in the past, the mystery in this steely, piercing, psychological thriller is as gripping as its twists are surprising.
