      Grace was a quick read (it's a novella) yet it still managed to capture my imagination early on. Essentially about the disappearance of a young girl where suspicions turn towards member’s of her family there is a lot of tension and intrigue. In particular in respect of the family dynamics and you are kept guessing to the end as to who is responsible. The ending was very good and not at all expected.

      I downloaded this intending to take my time over it but finished in one sitting. It's a real page turner with flawed but believable characters and a flowing narrative. I spent three quarters of the book congratulating myself on having been smart enough to guess the ending - I was wrong & the true ending was wholly unexpected. My favourite of all of Steven Smith's short stories - an easy 5 stars.

      A short story but cleverly told. It really dangles the clues in front of you but I didn't make the connection till very near the end. I particularly liked the way the family member’s were portrayed, leading you to think they were guilty then turning your assumptions on their heads until the penny drops and you realise what actually happened. This would actually make a great film.

      For such a short read, this packed quite a punch.The only thing that really niggled was the book could have been edited better. There were quite a few times when I noticed rather glaring mistakes either of dialogue or grammar, and I found that this distracted me from the story.But actually, really quite impressed.
