    I ve grown to like short stories and Emma Kavanagh s The Affair is no different There s murder, mystery and intrigue crammed into 28 pages.There is little build, the story hits the ground running and sprints to the finish.

    A surprisingly well rounded crime mystery short story that introduces the reader to the main character in her novel Falling The author jumps straight into the story of the death of a husband and wife Was it murder suicide, or something far nefarious A very enjoyable introduction to a new author for me and a highly recommended short read.

    This quick, short story by Emma Kavanagh features Charlotte Solomon, the Swansea Times crime reporter we meet in Emma s brilliant new psychological thriller Hidden The Affair is supposed to be read before Hidden, as in it Charlie meets police officer Aden also featured in Hidden for the first time, but apart from this, I think there s no reason to read these books in any particular order.A couple have been found murdered in their living room Charlie goes to the scene and joins numerous neighbours who have crowded at the couple s front door Using her nosy reporter skills, Charlie observes and listens to the neighbours gossip and body language and from there starts to piece together the events leading up to the crime Ms Kavanagh has a knack for engaging the reader and thanks to her excellent writing skills I really enjoyed reading this short story.

    I am not familiar with this author s works however I do know that I love her style of writing I would actually give it a 3 1 2 The affair was so short and while I did enjoy it, I found it too short, I wanted The story itself was interesting, a couple is found dead and this novel introduces Charlotte, a journalist, who will be a main character in an upcoming novel by this author The majority of this story is the reaction of the neighbours, and the revelation of some secrets that may or may not have anything to do with the couple s murders As I did like this author s style, I would like to read a longer novel by her, this one was too short, I felt like I had read several chapters in the middle of a book, I wanted substance.

    A good introduction to Charlie the journalist from Kavanagh s other books.

    Gosh this was good How does Emma Kavanagh manage to pack so much into a short story Skill that s how She is a really good author IMO and this one although it centres around a double murder the style is lively and there are touches of humour to lighten the mood The crowd gawping at the house at the centre of the crime were captured really well and the characters were easy to imagine You feel sorry for Wendy, who is despised in the area for her long standing affair with Morris, who is one of the victims Another really good ending too.

    I loved this short story as an introduction to Charlie, a feisty and capable journalist in Swansea Really lovely writing and use of words and excellent characterisation Plot is pretty straightforward which is fair enough for a short story Fantastic to read in one bite.
