I received Wild Place by Christian White from Affirm Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Wild Place is an engaging mystery with a fast story and a whodunnit that I personally found to be a little unexpected. Rather than leaving me delighted, the unexpected twist left me feeling a little disappointed.
I love reading stories set in Australia, particularly mysteries and particularly in my home state of Victoria, because I feel like I can relate more to the characters and the setting. However, in this particular case there was a disconnect that I felt might be because the characters are a little two-dimensional and unrelatable.
Despite the few hiccups, Wild Place did keep me interested enough and was an easy enough read that I made it through to the end without much difficulty and without feeling like it was a slog.
A lot of the staples of a great thriller are worked into Wild Place but I found it to be pretty forgettable overall. A good read but don’t expect anything earth-shattering.
