I had avoided reading this because of mixed reviews I'd read until I saw that it was going to be a PBS Masterpiece offering. So, I thought I'd give it a try.

Nearly 14 hours later (I listened to the audio version) I'm sad to say I agree with the mixed reviews. It was an interesting premise but had many unlikeable characters, too many loose ends that were not resolved—it almost felt like a sequel was in the making—and the big mystery was never fully explained. I give it a resounding meh.
