I love a good psychological thriller, and Splinter does not disappoint. Adam suffered a major tragedy in the family some twenty one years ago, but the incident still weighs heavy on his mind, and his sister's cruel treatment towards him doesn't make life any easier. To top it off, Adam's psychiatrist, Dr Vann, is starting to get suspicious and begins digging into Adam's past to find out more about the incident that happened over two decades ago.

This was a very enjoyable read. While I did figure out the mystery from the get go, I still found the book a joy to read and enjoyed seeing how the author unraveled the story. In a short space of time, Bussa manages to give you intrigue, conflict, compelling characters and a solid story structure. There were numerous errors, which I did find distracting but not enough to turn me off the story.
