Saint X Author Alexis Schaitkin Summary ☆ 107 Read & download Saint X Author Alexis Schaitkin Claire is only seven years old when her college age sister Alison disappears on the last night of their family vacation at a resort on the Caribbean island of Saint X Several days later Alison’s body is found in a remote spot on a nearby cay and two local men – employees at the resort are arrested But the evidence is slim the timeline against it and the men are soon released The story turns into national tabloid news a luri. That night Claire is awakened by the sound of a key rattling in the lock As she surfaces from dreams she watches the door to the hotel room open Her sister tiptoes across the room and slides into bed In the morning Claire wakes at dawn to find her sister s bed empty She is on the balcony her eyes fixed on something in the distance It seems her sister is hardly sleeping at allThe problem with reading a book and putting off writing the review for weeks is that the small details begin to fade but Saint X is the type of read that reuires deep thought and pondering before discussing I m still not sure I can do a review of this book justice as it is so many aspects put into one cohesive timeline Part true crime style mystery part delayed coming of age Saint X provides a suspenseful investigation coupled with self discovery of the protagonistThis was an eye opening glance at how deep the ties between race and privilege run The author did a fantastic job of creating a uniue narrative while touching on themes as old as time and bringing attention to just how far America and us privileged folks in general needs to progress The pacing is very slow and detailed which works well for this type of story but is told in such a riveting voice This isn t a thriller per se but it does take on a few of the ualities that fans of psychological suspense find appealing If you re interested in other recent literary fiction novels featuring social justice discussions please consider giving your time to this worthy story as well Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy
