The Confession

Reviewed by National Vice Chairman Jenny Thorne

One night a man walks into the home of disgraced Dublin banker Harry McNamara and his wife, Julie. The man brutally attacks Harry as Julie watches, frozen by fear. Just an hour later, the attacker - who says he doesn't know the identity of his victim - has handed himself in to the police and confessed to beating Harry to death. But why did he do it?

The Review

As it states on the cover, 'you find out who did it on the very first page, and on the last page, you'll find out why'.

Each chapter is written about one of the characters in the story - which I found made the narrative a little disjointed, though the book was still easy reading. As the story unfolds there are many twists and turns, keeping the reader wondering what motive they will discover on the final page. Jo Spain builds up the characters in the story very well and I felt I could relate to them, although I was a little disappointed that there were not more references to the fact that the story was set in Ireland.
