Being more of a Psychological Thriller reader, I was interested in the concept of Die of Shame, when hearing Mark Billingham discuss it on a panel event.
The most captivating part of the book is the lack of characters and anyone who reads and loves Christie will get the feel of this book straight away.
I found the writing extremely clever, seeing from different points of view, that then leads up to the eventual death, although we know about the murder earlier in the book.
All the characters, had issues, flaws and then some. So working out who it could be wasn't easy for the police. Combine that with the act of, what happens in the group, stays in the group.
This is a clever story, told in clear chapters/parts, so you know who you are listening to. The characters are in recovery, which gives you an element of maybe not having to like them, but understand they are on a journey to improve themselves.
Thoroughly enjoyable read.
