Very slow-paced and character-driven. Which I usually love, but I didn't really gain anything from this. I think the murdered French girl is just an excuse to let us in the mind of the protagonist who thinks of her college mates and the fateful summer they met Severine (murdered girl). No resolutions but the murderer is already given from the start. Nothing to solve here, just introspection and what-ifs. LOTS of legal stuff bec author is a lawyer.
