I’ve come to expect certain things from a B.A. Paris novel. Vivid characters, with at least one who will be distinctly unlikable from the start. A plot that initially feels very straightforward, that makes you think you know what’s going on, only to realize you don’t.

(Novels I would have been feverishly hunting down so I could read them as soon as possible!) And yet… it is a debut novel. Wow.
