Book #2 of the Herring Cove Road series.

*WARNING* This second novel in the Herring Cove Road series contains speckles of strong language and involves disturbing story elements.

The first murder of a child raised eyebrows; the second raised alarms.

Ten-year-old Dewey is moving, and he couldn't be more excited; though, he's alone in his enthusiasm. Lisa, his mother, and recent

Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death is the second installment in the Herring Cove Road series. This book is a little darker than book one but still a enjoyable read due to its rich and well-developed characters and relationships. This book centers on Dewey, who begins to go by his full name Dwight.

Lisa can no longer afford her home next door to Av so she and Dwight move to another neighborhood. Av is heartbroken but finds he spends almost as much time with them at the new place a

This is the second book in this series. The first is Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy. You can read my review here.

When I started this story I felt like I was reading about old friends. The characters just pull you in. My favorite one is Avrial. He has a lesser part in this story. This one is more about Dewey.

This almost reads like two different novels. The first part of the story is more of a coming of age tale about Dewey. Then it turns into a suspense saga with some pretty disturbing events. It defin

Still On Herring Cove Road
By
Michael Kroft

Just how is life lived one the other side of the freeway? You know, in those low income apartments filled with one parent households and elderly personages on pensions that don’t quite meet the end of the month? Those of us who live on the tree lined streets of single family homes with two car garages and two income households seem to see life through a different set of glasses. Life seems to go along at a little different pace, until we suddenly find our

A wonderful tale by Michael Kroft of growing up poor in a rough part of Halifax. I fell is love with the main characters, Dwight or Dewey, Mr. Avriel Rosen or Av, Blue (an old soul in a little boy's body) and the shy Stevie.

We get to know the neighbors and the in and outs of been a child in the early 70's. While we watch the boys come to terms with the changes in the world, the grown ups in the story are worried by a "Kid-Killer" in their mist.

The author weaves the reader into the daily lives of

I enjoyed the first book in this series so much that I quickly bought the second one and started it right away. There was a murder in the first one, but it was not solved until the next one, and was only a small part of the story. I was very disappointed. The delightful characters of the first book are surrounded by a serial killer or killers; the torture murder of a child (rather graphically described) and a lot of other unpleasant stuff I did not want to deal with. The author created great cha ...more

Still on Herring Cove Road - Hickory Dickory Death by Michael Kroft.
This continues the story of the relationship between Av, Lisa and Dewie in the same evocative and sensitive way, with real and beautifully-depicted new characters, and is a joy to read. It gets darker as the mystery of the child murders unfolds, and in places is heartbreaking, but it kept me guessing to the end. I highly recommend the Herring Cove Road novels.https://www.amazon.com/review/create-...#

This is the second book of the trilogy. I have read all three books. I loved how the author entertwined family, friendship, love and a murder mystery. Very easy, delightful reads. I am reading another of the author’s books: Before Herring Cove Road. ENJOY!

This second book was less fanciful than the first. It included the murder of children which added not only sadness but disgust. There was also a few loose ends that were unresolved. I liked the ending, but it was unrealistic.

The boy and his mother move to an apartment in a seedy area. Children are being killed and nobody knows who is doing it. Drug dealing is going on here.

Awful

Children being abused. Terrible plot. Quit reading after the graphic murder scene of the main character. Why write such awful things?

Fun read.

I truly came to enjoy his books. This one had a bit of a mystery to it. And you Never guess who the criminal is until the very end.
