Don’t Believe It
The case against Grace Sebold for pushing her boyfriend off Soufriere Bluff in St Lucia is watertight. Certainly, the police and the jury think so and Grace is duly convicted. Ten years later, Sidney Ryan, an up and coming talent in television, sets out to produce a documentary of the murder to be broadcast in real time. As it progresses, she begins to question some of the evidence. Is Grace guilty? Or not? And if not, then who committed the crime? The story is extremely well crafted, switching from Sidney’s present-time investigation, back to the jury’s deliberations and then forward again to the television program as it unfolds episode by episode. Ratings are going through the roof until an unsettling discovery casts an entirely new light on events. Although this reader guessed what happened on the bluff long before the book’s end, it doesn’t really matter. Twists and turns, fresh revelations, new characters, and unforeseen developments abound right up to the last chapter and will keep mystery fans thoroughly entertained. With the added pleasure of Charlie Donalea’s excellent prose– clear and smooth yet never overwhelming the plot–Don’t Believe It ranks as a top-notch whodunit.
