Penance - Kanae Minato

After reading Confessions I knew that Kanae Minato was going to become one of my new favorite authors. So of course I jumped at that chance to read this when I saw it on Netgalley. This had that same dark and twisted feel that Confessions had.


This book follows four girls and the affect that a murder of their friend has on their lives. They were the last ones to see Emily alive and they even saw her murderer but we're unable to help police catch him. Emily's mother says something to the girls that will change their lives forever.


I was sucked in to this book from the beginning and never wanted to put it down. I would definitely recommend this book to others and I really hope that the publisher has plans to publish English translations of Kanae Minato's other work.


Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
