City Under One Roof – Book Review

City Under One Roof by Iris Yamashita

When a local teenager discovers a severed hand and foot washed up on the shore of the small town of Point Mettier, Alaska, Cara Kennedy is on the case. A detective from Anchorage, she has her own motives for investigating the possible murder in this isolated place, which can be accessed only by a tunnel.

After a blizzard causes the tunnel to close indefinitely, Cara is stuck among the odd and suspicious residents of the town—all 205 of whom live in the same high-rise building and are as icy as the weather. Cara teams up with Point Mettier police officer Joe Barkowski, but before long the investigation is upended by fearsome gang members from a nearby native village.

Haunted by her past, Cara soon discovers that everyone in this town has something to hide. Will she be able to unravel their secrets before she unravels?

City Under One Roof is a fast-paced mystery, told from several character’s points of view. As we follow along with Cara, we discover almost everyone has secrets and a reason for being in such a remote town. With a captivating premise, dramatic characters, and a setting that feels like a character itself – you’ll want to read this in one sitting. The murder mystery kept me guessing, yet I wasn’t right in my theories. The intense suspense builds throughout and delivers a satisfying conclusion. This was a perfect, light and cozy read for a winter night.
