All Come to Dust – Bryony Rheam

I received an E-ARC copy of ‘All Come to Dust’ by Bryony Rheam through NetGalley from Parthian Books, in return for my honest review. Thank you to the publisher for my copy. On NetGalley it says the release date is 04.03.22, but it seems to be available to purchase now.

I received a gifted copy of ‘All Come to Dust’ by Bryony Rheam in return for my honest review.

This book is set in Zimbabwe, in the town of Bulawayo and follows Chief Inspector Edmund Dube.

One day he is called to the house where a woman has been found dead, the only reason for suspicion is a letter opener sticking out of her chest.

Edmund is told to leave the case alone, but he is determined to find out the reasons behind the death.

With many local residents not opening up, he struggles to find the truth.

Was the woman’s death a murder? What other secrets will Edmund uncover throughout his investigation?

This book is more than just a mystery, it explores the changes in the country and the poverty of its occupants. It also points out the inequalities and prejudices that are still present.

I really felt for Edmund as no one seemed to be taking him seriously, even though his intelligence is great, and he discovers many secrets and corruptions in his local area.

I did find it a bit hard to get into as it was a little slow and to be honest, I found it going over my head a little bit. However, it is a brilliantly written story and one that many will enjoy, it was just not for me.

Overall, a brilliantly written mystery which delves into the changes in Zimbabwe.

My Rating:

💜💜💜 /5
