    1. Eva Dolan has written a superb bleak and atmospheric psychological thriller that provides background of how the the horror that resulted in the Grenfell Tower disaster came to manifest itself. It covers the burning issues of gentrification and the social and economic cleansing of the poor and the working class whilst the property developers ruthlessly profiteer in London. Dolan gives us a rare glimpse into the alternative lifestyles and lives of the political activists, revealing their human riv [...]


    2. 3.5 starsThis starts as a book about taking on the system, about the little guys and gals railing against the system. A housing project in London is due to be destroyed to make way for luxury housing. Ella, a young blogger and anti-gentrification activist, is trying to fight the proposed project and help the six remaining owners. Molly is another more long term activist. One night, at a party for Ella’s upcoming book, there’s a death and Molly and Ella cover it up. I didn’t buy into their [...]


    3. Eva Dolan has ventured into the sphere of the psychological thriller with This Is How It Ends. She has done it magnificently, bringing wit and depth to this tale of two women.We enter into a very different subculture. A rather fascinating and vibrant one. This is the world of the activist. These are the people who take direct action, rather than sitting at home and moaning about what is wrong with the world. The people who demonstrate in public, with placards and get the attention of authorities [...]


    4. EXCERPT: 'I'm going to expose you,' he snarled. The laughter caught in her throat. It was as if he was there in front of her, face contorted with rage, body blown up and pumped for the fight. 'I know what you did, Ella.'A man ran up the stairs, clipping her shoulder as he passed, but she hardly noticed. 'And I know how you did it,' Quinn said. THE BLURB: Ella Riordan is a community activist who became famous when she was beaten by police during a social protest. Now Ella is a squatter in a build [...]


    5. Cleverly plotted and blindingly well written, this psychological thriller takes you into the world of social activism and murder. As with all of Dolan's work, it brings contemporary issues right to your front door, forming them into created situations that challenge the way you think, about people especially. She's not afraid to take you into grey areas and her characters are so complex, natural, and real, that they provoke a strong emotional reaction in you, like they really did just turn up on [...]


    6. Well to be honest I’m not sure where to begin. I’m certainly sure that the end has left me with that melancholy, low key buzz of a feeling that all real readers will know when they’ve just finished a novel that will linger in the senses and be the benchmark for future reads for a long long time to come.Eva Dolan’s Zigic and Ferreira series is one of the best, most authentic police series out there but This Is How It Ends enters a whole new league of subtle brilliance that defies explanat [...]


    7. This is a complex psychological thriller set in the world of social activism. Ella Riordan is a PhD student writing her thesis on social activism. At first the activists Ella wanted to interview were wary of her but after she was beaten by police at a rally, they began to talk to her. Now she has become involved in trying to stop the eviction of people from a low cost housing tower by developers planning to build a new expensive apartment block in its place. Ella has written a book about the evi [...]


    8. This is how it begins.With a near-empty building, the inhabitants forced out of their homes by property developers.With two women: idealistic, impassioned blogger Ella and seasoned campaigner, Molly.With a body hidden in a lift shaft.But how will it end?I always relish a new Eva Dolan novel and this certainly lived up to my expectations.Once again, Eva has blown me away with this contemporary and eloquent piece of modern-day crime fiction. We learn the story of Ella and Molly who are both activi [...]


    9. Find my full review here: crimebythebook/blog/2018/1This book delivered one of my most conflicted reading experiences in recent memory! I absolutely loved its final 100 or so pages - but the earlier half of the book I found a bit slow and difficult to follow due to a plotline told in reverse chronological order. You can find my full thoughts on the book’s pros and cons in my blog post!


    10. Well that was a twist that I certainly did not see coming! The story of 2 women a young activist and an older women who is like a mother figure. It jumps between the 2 women before and after the body is thrown down the elevator shaft.Thank you to Netgalley and Bloomsbury publishing for a copy of this book to read and review



    11. I've not read any of Eva Dolan's previous novels, but having read this standalone thriller, I really want to. Like most psychological thrillers these days, it's told in alternating chapters from two people's point of view, one in the third person (Ella) and one in the first (Molly). Ella finds herself with a dead body on her hands, and calls Molly for help. Molly's chapters go forward in time, from the death onwards, and Ella's go backwards in time over the weeks and months leading up to it, so [...]


    12. I've read everything Eva Dolan has written and they've been marvellous but this one is utterly outstanding, enormously clever and a masterclass in plotting and reader immersion! Surely a book of the year.


    13. Eva Dolan is a great writer who usually tackles interesting subjects in her police procedurals, so I was very interested to read her latest stand-alone novel This is How it Ends. And Dolan has proven once again that it is possible to include current affairs topics into an engaging thriller without bogging the story down. Both of her two main protagonists, activists Ella and Molly, are intriguing and make a nice difference from your average mystery cast. These are women who are defying societal r [...]


    14. Ella and Molly are activists. Ella is young and new to the activist community, whereas Molly is older and has been involved with the activist community for years. They are both living in a building that is evicting the tenants, and most tenants have already left. After a rooftop party, Molly receives a call from Ella to come help her. When Molly arrives, there is a dead man in Ella's apartment. Due to the women's backgrounds, they don't think the police will believe they're innocent, so they opt [...]


    15. a many layered tale which shows that your actions have ripples throughout your life, not just in the moment.


    16. With thanks to the publisher for the copy received.This Is How It Ends is the first standalone novel by Eva Dolan and it is pretty amazing. It is based around a group of friends who protest against government, property developers and anybody who they feel is doing harm. With the state of the country there is plenty to protest about but their current project is the demolition of a block of flats that will have a huge impact on the lives of it’s inhabitants. Many people protest from the comfort [...]


    17. This Is How It Ends is top shelf thriller. The gritty forgotten parts of London are exposed in this story about corruption, activism, police brutality, bullying, misogyny, and gentrification. It’s a sophisticated thriller like few are, topical in its chosen issues and sharply tense in its grim delivery. The characters are raw and real, the setting authentically atmospheric – right down to the last rat!Ella is an activist with a huge social media presence. On the surface she seethes with ange [...]


    18. Thank you to Bloomsbury publishing for sending me a free copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.This book didn't read like a typical thriller. I don't know necessarily how to explain it, but this book was very intricately written. Very atmospheric, I could vividly imagine things as I was reading them. I have never heard of Eva Dolan before, or came across any of her books. So my experience with her writing style is new.I was entranced at the beginning of this [...]


    19. Visit the locations in the novelEva Dolan has written some of the most gripping and social aware novels that I’ve read and this is no exception. This is How it Ends is a novel of our time in many ways. Ella is a blogger who wants to do something with her life, give a voice to those in need. Molly on the other hand is a campaigner used to protesting against the latest cause and since she’s very closely linked to the latest cause, her efforts increase and suddenly become personal. Both charact [...]


    20. 3.5⭐"One day the front of the place is going to collapse. Leaving us all exposed in our flats like the world's grimmest doll's house. Most rooms abandoned and sad and the little figures inside so forlorn. We've been played with too much. We're almost broken."This book has a very unique story with interesting characters, but it got very slow in the middle. It may have been just a little too long for the story that was being told. The chronology was a little bit confusing at times, but it was a [...]


    21. Eva Dolan writes a masterful thriller. Her first standalone is brilliant, a gripping read with two unforgettable characters, brought together by a murder and a cover-up.


    22. Waw. That ending! Those final chapters were so good they had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I really tore through the part ‘where it ends’ and couldn’t put it down. Needless to say that I’m still tired the morning after, but it was all very worth it. I can’t imagine anyone stopping in the middle of those final revelations.If I have to be honest, I did have some niggles in the beginning which I want to share but I can assure you that they melted away in the end. The story is told by [...]


    23. Ella is an impassioned PhD student and idealistic blogger who would like to do something more worthwhile with her life, to help make a difference to those who don’t have a voice. But is there more to her than meets the eye? Molly is a seasoned campaigner, a pro who has seen everything and been in more protests then she can count. But Molly is being forced out of her home and will fight with every ounce of her being to stay. But is she really as brave as she makes out?So when these two women th [...]


    24. This Is How it Ends by Eva Dolan is a psychological thriller that will keep you entertained thru the whole book.Our two main characters are Ella and Molly. The story begins with a murder. And since that point, Ella's story goes backward, telling us about her past, her history and takes us to the very beginning, an incident that changed Ella's life forever and turned her into the girl she is today. Molly's story tells us how the events have proceeded after the murder and how it eventually ended.E [...]


    25. Ella Riordan is a community activist with a high profile social media presence, available to support any cause. Her latest project is trying to prevent property developers evicting the tenants of an apartment block that they want to transform into luxury homes. One night after a party in the building, Ella calls her friend Molly, desperate for help - she's accidentally killed a man. She persuades Molly to help her hide the body in a lift shaft, convincing her not to call the police. However, thi [...]


    26. Wow, not the ending I expected! This was much more a "whydunit" as opposed to a"whodunit"! I had trouble getting into this one initially as I think I was reading too quickly, assuming I knew what this was about. But when I slowed down to savor it, I realized there was so much social commentary as well as the plot shadowing Ella and Molly as they work to cover up a murder committed by Ella in a hasty altercation. Because they are both protesting the gentrification of the area in which they live, [...]


    27. Ella is a wellknown urban activist squatting in a block of flats scheduled for demolition. One evening suring a celebratory party she goes back to her flat and finds a dead man lying there. She doesn't call the police or an ambulance but allows herself to be persuaded by her friend Molly to dispose of the body in another part of the building. As time goes on Ella is wracked with guilt and also paranoia, is Molly the good friend she seems?Having read some of Dolan's previous work, the Zadig and V [...]


    28. I wanted to read this book based on description. From the beginning, I really struggled to connect with the pages. I wish I had an honest reason why, but the only thing I can think of is (since this was an advanced electronic copy) that because of the font that it was displayed in, it made it physically difficult to read. Aside from that, the book was okay. Now that I am finished, I liked the plot. The part I didn't like was the "Then"/"Now" back and forth. It's not the first book I've read that [...]


    29. This Is How It Ends is such a clever, well-constructed piece of fiction. I found myself completely absorbed in Ella and Molly’s dilemma. For me, my reading experience tends to be 80 to 90 percent about the people involved. The characters are what appeal to me and oh boy, Eva Dolan sure shows the rest of the literary world how to write real, believable people! Bit by bit, as the story progressed, Molly broke my heart. I felt an odd connection to this 60-year-old woman, a former Greenham Common [...]
