Oundle Crime

Hannah is a clever girl from a working-class home who is studying at a prestigious Oxford college. She shares rooms with April – the IT girl of the title – who is from a very moneyed home and is vivacious, charming and outgoing. One evening in their first year, April is found dead, and on Hannah’s evidence one of the college porters is convicted of the murder. Fast forward 10 years and there are moves to prove the man’s innocence and Hannah, now married and living in Edinburgh, finds herself at the centre of a media storm. I thought this was a fine study of grief, guilt, PTSD and anger and another really good mystery from Ruth Ware.
