We Being at the End by Chris Whitaker is a splendid crime thriller novel. However, there is much more to this absorbing and great story, contained in so many well crafted words. Beside a murder mystery, it’s about family, hate, love and growing up. It’s about illness and victory. It is additionally about justice, bad and good, and how they can all be blurred. Chris Whitaker told this wonderful yet often sad story so effortlessly that it is more poetry than novel. From the beginning I realized this was a novel to savour—so the words could make magic in my mind and the characters start to possess me. There is an emotional intensity that just blew my mind.

I liked the wild, impetuous Duchess – such a kid. However, from various perspectives much more wise then her age. She carries wretched hatred inside her which frequently explodes into poorly thought, that leads to actions which unleashes damage on herself and people around her. She’ll live on in my mind for a long, long time. Chief Walker (Walk) is additionally stunningly portrayed. He wants everyone to be happy. Deep down he is a good person and he has a significant impact on the Duchess. It was Walk who held her back from doing something silly and encouraged her to the good. he kept her pointed toward the future rather than the at this point.

While Walk thinks his best friend, Vincent King, is innocent and is determined to prove so. Duchess strongly believes he is guilty and embarks to “right a long period of wrongs”. The author uncovers human connections and the connection between brother and sister Duchess and Robin Radley will break your heart with its purity and strength. Gutsy Duchess lover her younger brother so much; in return, Robin holds Duchess in line, regularly saving her from herself.

Whitaker portray the connection among Hal and his grandkids using nature. As the Montana winter sneaks in, ironically there are traces of the start of a thaw in the connection between Duchess and her granddad. Moreover, while she and Hal watched out over his territory, “He kept an eye on trees and water and the nothing that was gradually turning out to be something to her.” The elderly person is so wise in his tranquil manner, thus artful in his dealings with his rebellious granddaughter. For sure I recommend We Being at the End by Chris Whitaker.
