Little Girl Dead had been recommended to me months ago, and I’m happy I finally purchased and read it last night. An Australian author, Kirsty Ferguson has the skill to make sure you won’t get tangled within their dialects or terminology. It made for a smooth and quick read.
Her debut thriller, while it’s a classic whodunit, there are enough twists and turns to keep your mind on its toes. Once you think you’ve figured out who’s behind the murder of sixteen-year-old Cassie Grace, you’re thrown in an entirely different direction. That’s what I look for in a good suspense novel.
Written in third person omniscient, which I’m not accustomed to, I did find it a little hard to follow the dialogue at times. However, once I realized the point of view, it was no longer a problem. The plot was intriguing and original, with relatable characters, and current to today’s horrors and struggles within teenage and adult lives. She masterfully merged sufficient back story and foreshadow, interweaving effortlessly from past to present.
I am definitely looking forward to her second novel, and would recommend this to any reader who loves a fast paced, gripping read.
