The Woman in the Library is a book within a book – or is there another one as well? It’s a confounding story because I was never really sure what to believe compared to what the author wanted me to believe. That’s what makes it so appealing.
The story begins when a woman’s scream shatters the calm of the reading room at the Boston Public Library. While security guards take charge and order everyone in the building to stay in place, four strangers sitting at the same table pass the time chatting. As friendships develop after they are allowed to leave the building, we start wondering if one of them is the murderer.
It’s a book that requires concentration, as there are many plot twists along the way. I enjoyed it immensely but wondered right at the end if there was yet another story line I should have spotted earlier.
Five stars from me.
