Good book
Wilde Lake
Laura Lippman
Wilde Lake was slow to start, but once it got going, I wasn't able to put it down. The story alternates between present day and thirty years earlier when the protagonist, Luisa, is a child. Through these two different lenses, the characters become strongly developed as they struggle with what makes someone good or bad and if it's as black and white as they might like to think. There is a strong theme of how the idea of morality changes as you grow older as well as how the context of memories change as you mature, which was enjoyable, especially in contrast with the criminal court cases playing out in the background.
