Review of “What Have We Done: A Novel”

Are you ready for a mystery thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat? Look no further than Alex Finlay’s latest release, What Have We Done. This book is one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2023, and for good reason.

The story follows three childhood friends, Jenna, Donnie, and Nico, who lived in a group home for parentless teens called Savior House. They suffered abuse and neglect there, but formed a bond that helped them get through the trauma. When the home was shut down after several kids went missing, the friends were separated, each going on to live troubled but accomplished lives.

Twenty-five years later, the friends are reunited under tragic circumstances. Someone is trying to kill them, and they must come together to uncover the secrets of their shared past in order to survive. The story delves into the question of how the lives we leave behind and the secrets we carry with us can come back to haunt us.

At its core, What Have We Done is a coming-of-age story mixed with a thrilling mystery. The characters are well-developed, and their struggles and fears are relatable even if you’ve never been in their shoes. Finlay’s writing is both engaging and suspenseful, and the plot keeps you guessing until the very end.

I particularly enjoyed the way the book alternates between the past and present, which gradually reveals the characters’ shared history leading up to the events that unfold in the present day. This technique kept me hooked throughout the book and added depth to the characters.

The novel also tackles themes of resilience and forgiveness, showing how the characters’ traumatic pasts continue to affect them. It doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of life, but it also offers hope and redemption through the characters’ strength and their willingness to confront their demons.

Overall, What Have We Done is a top-notch mystery thriller that will satisfy any reader looking for a gripping and emotionally resonant story. The combination of relatable characters, skillful writing, and a suspenseful plot makes this book one you don’t want to miss. It’s a testament to Alex Finlay’s talent as a writer and cements his place as one of the leading voices in thrillers today.

So if you’re looking for a book that will keep you up late into the night, look no further than What Have We Done. It’s a must-read for any fan of the genre, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Grab a copy, settle in, and get ready for a wild ride.
