** The Good Suicides by Antonio Hill


Continuing the summer series of European thrillers (here and here), The Good Suicides features a series of mysterious suicides by employees of the same company, intertwined with the investigation by a bored detective on maternity leave (great character!) of the disappearance of her colleague’s wife. The latter story is more straightforward, more believable, and almost perfect. The former does not quite hold together in the end, but provides bountiful twists and a rare, sweet father-son relationship.
