At last, a real mystery. It is the story of a little boy who disappeared one day, and how his grandfather and mother found his murderer twenty years later. There were plenty of twists and lots of very annoying missed opportunities for communication. in the first pages, the author tells you that the grandfather's name, Gerlof, is actually pronounced Yair-loff, which distracted me so much that I could hardly attend to the plot.

Every time the name appeared, I would need three tries (Ger-loff, Hair-loff, and finally, with effort, Yair-loff) to get it right. It slowed me down significantly.

Mysteries are not generally known for character development, and this is no exception, but it was pretty well-written and had far fewer cliches than most.
