Tim Weaver's "What Remains" marks the sixth entry in his mystery series, offering a fresh perspective after reading the last three books in the series. Revisiting the series from the start, I was particularly intrigued by the exploration of Healey's background, even though my knowledge of his ultimate fate took some surprise out of a significant twist. Nevertheless, "What Remains" still stands as one of the series' strongest offerings. Weaver effectively ties up loose ends from previous instalments, providing a satisfying sense of closure. The gradual connection of narrative dots was engaging, and it was satisfying to see the various storylines converge. This book is a recommendation for fans who have embraced Weaver's suspenseful storytelling. While a certain twist might not have hit me as intended due to my reading sequence, the novel successfully fleshes out characters and answers questions, serving as a cornerstone in the series. To sum up, "What Remains" undoubtedly deserves its place in the upper echelons of the series. As Healey's past unfolds and narrative pieces fall into place, the book provides both resolution and a solid foundation for the overarching story.
