Click here to read reviewer Michael Leonard's take on The Start of Everything.

Winslow's second book keeps readers on a razor's edge as she propels them into a world of mystery and intrigue and deception. She uses the the tool of multiple narrators in the forms of various investigators, victims and even the perpetrators themselves revealing facts and thoughts in short, terse chapters that not only indicate character but the passage of time.

Though she is a transplanted American living in England, this book seems to have been written for a British reader. The Start of Everything centers on historic Cambridge University, and many of the phrases and references here have English roots.

Whichever side of the ocean you're on, this is a thrilling ride. Mayhem and mystery and multiple deeds of foul play keep you riveted. The story arc rises, falls, and rises again--you have to keep on your toes to remember the players. It's a wonderful British crime drama where everyone has flaws--including the good guys.
