Publisher Description

“Erin Kelly is a seriously good writer, and this gripping novel is her best yet.” —Sophie Hannah, author of Kind of Cruel

A stand-out author of deeply atmospheric psychological thrillers, Erin Kelly is on her way to joining the bestselling ranks of Kate Atkinson and Barbara Vine. Until now, the MacBride family has led a cozy life of upper-class privilege: good looks; tuition-free education at the prestigious private school where their father, Rowan, is headmaster; an altruistic righteousness inherited from their mother, magistrate Lydia. But when the MacBrides gather for the first time since Lydia’s passing at their restored barn in the secluded countryside, the family discovers a stranger in their midst: a stranger who is convinced that Lydia was a murderer—and who has been plotting a spectacular revenge that may shatter their world forever.

The Burning Air by Erin Kelley

I thought that this was a good book until it got to the crutch of matters. It started a bit slowly, but got going soon enough (before I put it down). I gave it three stars because it was indeed good, but only three because it disappointed & broke my heart somewhat.

Her point was made, but at what cost? It was her decision as an author, but too much that would have be obvious to the characters, as drawn, was ignored for it to be credible & redemptive. SMH.
