Two Wrongs by Mel McGrath
In my opinion...
I was really looking forward to reading Mel McGrath’s latest thriller- and it certainly touched on some unsettling and current topics.
The story is told from three different viewpoints; Nevis, the frequently spikey student, slightly disfunctional but nonetheless with a strong moral compass; Honor, Nevis’s ‘mother’ and Cullen, the Dean of the University.
They all had very clear roles, but I particularly liked Honor, and found her to be a sympathetic character, although I did wonder if her story was going to be developed further, particularly regarding her friendship with Zoe. The sections where she was on the houseboat were interesting, and brought a bit of an unusual element to the location.
Ultimately though, there were no real surprises. I have really enjoyed Ms McGrath’s previous novels, and had high expectations of this one, but pretty much from the start I had worked out what had happened.
Regardless this still a good read which held me to the end, to check that my early assumptions were correct!
