Review |
The Girl on the Train author Paula Hawkins’ new novel, A Slow Fire Burning, is a whodunit on an Agatha Christie scale

  • Paula Hawkins’ third novel reduces the part of London in which it is set to a village, one populated by damaged characters who bear grudges and hidden burdens
  • These are revealed when two deaths rock the community and police are called in. There is no genius detective here, however – so who’ll solve the crimes?
