Review

Praise for We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker

"Two damaged children--one timid and sweet, the other foul-mouthed and furious--will break readers' hearts in this well-plotted and perfectly-paced novel. If, like me, you love stories that kidnap your intended schedule because you can't not keep turning the pages, then I wholeheartedly recommend Chris Whitaker's We Begin at the End."
--
Wally Lamb, New York Times bestselling author of I Know This Much Is True

"I LOVED this book. From the riveting plot to the beautiful writing. But mostly what kept me longing to get back to it each day were the characters, especially young Duchess. Fierce, brave, vulnerable, she leaps off the page fully formed. As does Walk. How aptly named. A chief of police on his own inexorable journey. This is a book to be read and reread and an author to be celebrated."
--
Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"It's an instant classic....Let's begin at the end. After you've turned the final page of Chris Whitaker's magnificent new novel, you'll struggle--I struggled, certainly--to describe the experience...it recalls the very best of Tana French and Dennis Lehane. Think of Duchess Day Radley as a twenty-first-century Scout Finch, tough and curious and good. In fact, think of We Begin at the End as a novel at the same time distinctly American and profoundly universal."
--
A.J. Finn, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Woman in the Window

"A beautifully written mystery, packed with unforgettable characters. An intricately woven portrait of small-town intrigue where old and new sins collide."
--
Jane Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The Dry

"Rich with character and story, conflict and tension, humor, tragedy, and raw, unadulterated guts, this one has it all. Throw in the most compelling young protagonist I've read in at least a decade, and you have a deep and meaningful story that is an absolute delight from first page to last."
--
John Hart, author of six New York Times bestsellers

"We Begin at the End is a searing portrait of guilt and grief, strikingly written and full of characters you can't help but love."
--
Charlotte McConaghy, author of Migrations

"Beautifully written, We Begin at the End really reminds me of To Kill a Mockingbird. And the spirit of Scout is very much alive in Duchess."
--
Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes

"...Couldn't put it down. Incredible writing, characters so brilliantly drawn they jump off the page. Outstanding."
--
B. A. Paris, bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors

"This is an epic drama and a profound masterpiece. I'll be amazed if I read a better novel this year."
--
