Cynthia Darkening Hour

The story opens with a body found in the river with the simple words ‘Mona’s gone’. We then go back three months and read the story of Mona who is hired by Dora to look after her ageing father. I loved that the story alternates between Mona and Dora – we hear the events unfold from their viewpoints. The tension builds throughout the story, making me want to keep reading.
