The Burial Society by Nina Sadowsky
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Burial Society by Nina Sadowsky is a thrill-a-minute type book in league with works such as Chris Bohjalian’s The Flight Attendant. You will not be able to put it down!
Catherine is a multifaceted character who founded and runs a society that helps women escape from abusive situations. For the most part, she is disciplined, cold, and calculated, but in the course of her work, she became acquainted with the Burrows family, and cannot seem to let them go.
The family is abroad for the summer when Natalie Burrows discovers that her father has been brutally murdered. She and her brother enlist the help of their Uncle Frank in order to navigate foreign legal waters. The reader soon discovers that none of the characters is who they seem. Sadowsky does a fantastic job of creating characters the reader first loves, then doubts. Clues from the past disappearance of Natalie’s mother intertwine with events of the present, sending the reader on a fast-paced enterprise to discover the truth.
If you love mystery, intrigue, and psychological thrillers, this book is for you!
