Book review by Gene Schinto
“Cold Light” by Jenn Ashworth
In an unnamed city in England, Lola and Chloe at 14 are best friends. From the start, Lola as narrator tells us that Chloe and her older lover Carl are dead. The police call it a double suicide, but these two are no Romeo and Juliet. Chloe was in love with danger and Carl had eyes for more than one girl of a tender age.
Another tragedy occurred in Lola’s 14th year. A young man with Down’s syndrome disappears. He may have fallen through the ice of a nearby pond after Lola told him it was fun to go out on the ice.
We begin to suspect that Lola is withholding something she knows about the deaths of Chloe and Carl. There is much to think about in this disturbing novel of suspense whose mysteries may require some reading between the lines.
