An Elderly Lady Must Not Be Crossed
The sequel! SPOILERS BELOW FOR THE VERY END.
Maud is a killer, and she’s going on vacation. Six more stories about her life of crime intertwine with her most recent South African vacation in surprising ways.
I really, really liked this book up until the very end, which is so disappointing. The last 30 pages really brought the rating down.
SPOILER FOR THE VERY END.
Maud gets very white saviory at the end when she swoops in to save a South African family she happened to meet in a dark alley. It’s just giving ‘Instagram in the summer of 2020‘ vibes with the performatism.
