Until You See Me

3.5 of 5 stars 3.50  ·  rating details  ·  22 ratings  ·  6 reviews
Why does a woman admit to a dismemberment murder so horrible the body can't be identified as a man or a woman? Because it's better than what she really did. It was the crime of the decade in 1932. Grotesque. And it really happened, although not quite this way. The dismembered, decomposing body is found stuffed in a steamer trunk. Pearl Tild confesses to it because it is a...more

When I am not reading, quilting or scrapbooking, I am watching Investigation ID. I know, I know, it’s kind of creepy but I am addicted to reality murder mystery shows. I recall a story about a woman, Winnie Judd who in 1931 murdered her doctor-husband and stored his body as well as the bodies of two other women in two steamer trunks and valise while riding a train from Phoenix, Arizona to Union Station in Los Angeles. A porter became suspicious when he smelled a foul odor coming from the baggage...more
First, let me say that I don't like mysteries. My genre of choice is contemporary and literary fiction.

When a friend from book club recommended "Until You See Me," I resisted. She persisted and said it was one of the best she's ever read. She was right. Now, I'm passing along this recommendation to others who, like me, are always looking for a really good book.

Like every good crime novel, "Until You See Me" has a good mystery -- there's a gruesome crime, and an admission of guilt. But for what c...more
I do not understand how this book is getting such stellar reviews. I chose this book solely on the ratings that it has on amazon. I was extremely disappointed. I could NOT get into it. I did not particularly like the main character. I was almost inclined to give it only 1 star, but I forced myself to finish it and the second half was good enough to merit 2 stars I guess. It seems like at about the 40% mark, it got more interesting. It was still far from a book I would recommend. I will say that...more

This sadly tried way too hard to be clever and came over as pretentious and too highbrow for my liking. A great pity as it had a great story behind it and it was ruined for me.
Take this line for example... "I gauzed myself behind a veil that distorted her sharpness" !! I'm no idiot but what ??
It tells of a body-in-a-trunk murder back in the early 1930's....as I said a great back story as the person sought with reference to said trunk is a married woman !
It also jumps around a lot so you're a li...more
Interesting plot with uninteresting characters and lots of repetitive dialogue. It's a short book, yet it seemed too long. Maybe there's a short story in here waiting to get out. If you're thinking of reading this because you like murder mysteries, be warned that the "mystery" here is very much secondary to the love triangle aspect of the plot.

An intriguing story, but sometimes very badly written. Florid and obscure in far too many passages. I found it a rather unpleasant book as well. No really likable characters. I stayed with it only because I wanted to find out who the dismembered corpse was, and why Pearl, the main character, was traveling with said corpse stowed in her luggage. This is not a spoiler- we know this from the beginning of the book.
