Switcheroo Aaron Elkins

A cold case dating from the 1960s draws forensic anthropologist Gideon Oliver to the Channel Islands decades later to shine a light on the mysterious connection between two men who died there on the same night.
I found this a very easy read, more in the style of a cozy mystery than a crime thriller. The characters are likeable and the plot well thought out, but it is all somehow a bit too ‘on the surface’ and the reader doesn’t really get the chance to be gripped by the story. I would also have liked to read more about what happened to the boys during the war and the affect it had on Jersey. This part was skated over and I thought it was central to the story.
I received a copy of this novel via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Click on the cover to go to the Amazon.co.uk book page.
