Aurelius is a little town of just seven thousand souls. A minor crime rate and where everyone knows everyone and their business as well. The murder of a prostitute is the first thing that grips the town following which is the murder of each young girl. Trust and good feelings towards your neighbour turns to mistrust and suspicion. Everyone is suspect. It also shows how hysteria can change rational people into a mob of people intent on destruction. All small town get togetherness flies out of the window in the face of such hysteria.
An unusual read and one I liked.

I find changing up my reading now and then is nice and it's always wonderful when you're rewarded with a good read! This isn't my tastes but maybe I'll give it a try since you liked it! ;)ReplyDelete
This sounds more complex than the average murder mystery.ReplyDelete
My friend Cheryl said this one was a good one too! I have not read it yet.ReplyDelete
I remember reading this a while ago, I think. Good, but disturbing.ReplyDelete
