Well this isn't what I expected at all. This was really quite a good suspense novel and it's very difficult to write a review without giving at least a hint about the ending.

Ava is a translator for the court system. This is her first big job out of college and college was her first time living in one place for more than a year. Ava, a foundling, was adopted soon after birth by Claire, a woman who until then had a burgeoning career. After she adopts Ava, she no longer works, but moves from place to place, becoming an angry and often violent mother to Ava. The only place Ava feels she has a true home is with Claire's mother in France and she reminisces fondly about her summers with her grandmother.

After Claire's death, Ava visits a house that she has found a picture of; a house, that it turns out was the scene of a violent murder. Ava enlists a detective and a coworker to help her find out the truth about her past. But her past may not be as far behind as she thinks, as more people who are related to her family in some way keep finding unusual ways to die.

The story was well-written, and the pacing kept me from asking myself some questions that maybe should have occurred to me earlier. Green does a wonderful job at sleight-of-hand, having the reader looking one way, while pulling a rabbit out of a hat, (or stabbing in a knife in someone's back) with the other.
