Saint X, Alexis Schaitkin
Paradise gone wrong when a college girl dies while on vacation with her family. There are moments in a person’s life that define you, some that end up defining the rest of your life. For Claire, it’s her sister dying while the family was on vacation in a Caribbean island called Saint X. The mystery of Alison Thomas’s death remains unsolved until years later, when sister Claire runs into one of the original suspects in NYC, befriends him, and hopes to piece together what happened to her sister. Claire is obsessed, as one would be, to find the truth… and the peripheral characters introduced alter our understanding of what went down. And in the end, there really isn’t closure, as in life, how can there be. You can only move on, face each day, decide to continue, to live, to move forward.
