First of all, I have not read A Map of the Dark, which is the first book in The Searchers series. I’m not sure if that played a part in my opinion of this book.
Unfortunately, this book did not draw me in and have me invested in the characters or the stories. I didn’t feel like there was enough suspense to make it a true mystery. And while there was focus on issues, such as addiction, racism, etc., the book as a whole was not my cup of tea.
Thank you to NetGalley and Mulholland Books for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
