The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the "claustrophobic spine-tingler" (People) One by One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend's murder. April Clarke-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford. Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends--Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily--during their first term. By the end of the second, April was dead. Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah's world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April's death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide...including a murder. "The Agatha Christie of our generation" (David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author) proves once again that she is "as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime" (The Washington Post) with this propulsive murder mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat.… (más)

Hannah Jones believes she may have been responsible for an innocent man spending ten years in jail. It proved to be the rest of his life. John Neville was jailed mainly on the evidence that Hannah gave, but now she believes she may been wrong, and that the murderer is still at large.

At the time that April was murdered Hannah's husband, Will, was April's boy friend. And even Will is not above suspicion. As Hannah tries to work out who was where when April died, she realises that even those who are closest to her are not above suspicion.

A very readable story, and intriguing. The only problem I have is with the title.

Like many other readers, I really didn't see the end coming. ( )

The Short of It:

Everyone knows an “IT” girl.

The Rest of It:

You know who she is. She’s the one everyone gravitates towards. She is a little unhinged but doesn’t care. She might annoy you but life without her would be grim. April is this girl and when Hannah meets her at Oxford, she knows that they will be more than roomies. What she doesn’t know is that April will weave her way into a very close circle of friends and then show up dead. Murdered.

The night of April’s murder, Hannah watched someone exiting the stairwell and her testimony is what led to the suspect’s prison sentence. But now the suspect has died in prison and Hannah begins to question his innocence. The entire time he has claimed to be innocent. Could she have gotten it wrong and sent an innocent man to prison?

Ten years has passed since that horrible night but Hannah cannot get it out of her mind. Now, married to one of her classmates and expecting her first child, she becomes a little obsessed with finding out the truth. Against her husband’s wishes, she returns to the scene of the crime to see if anything stands out to her. What she thought was an open and shut case becomes something much more complicated.

I’ve been cautious about picking up every Ware book that comes out because they were beginning to feel a little formulaic but The IT Girl was just what I wanted. It keeps you guessing, the pace is good and if you like to read for entertainment then this will check all the boxes for you.

Recommend.

I generally enjoy Ruth Ware's mystery/suspense novels for what the are - clever enough and fun to get sucked into. This brand new one was sort of mediocre compared to some of her better books. The story centers on a group of friends at Oxford and the murder of the group leader - beautiful and wealthy April. Ten years later, her roommate is finally ready to reassess what might have happened that night and whether the person she accused was actually guilty.

I liked this, but the ending was REALLY predictable. I rarely figured out "who did it" before the end, partially because I don't care to think while I'm reading a mystery. I'm there to not think and just enjoy. But this one was just really obvious, and I don't think it was meant to be.

So, I don't know, if you really like Ruth Ware, go for it, but she has better books. ( )

Three stars is a generous rating. This novel could have been condensed. I felt like the story would never end. ( )
