Sep 03, 2020 rated it it was amazing
Teenager Bree Wells is missing and, while she may have gotten herself in over her head, there are plenty of unseen forces in the small Michigan town of Pike Lake pulling her down from all sides. Disappearing without a trace alongside semi-famous nu-metal hasbeen Ricky Hornween, she's left her boyfriend Russell McCreech, the lone artsy, contemplative member of his family of rural Michigan bikers, expecting the worst and trying to figure out what happened. To make matters more complicated a locket ...more

This was a very enjoyable read; kept my interest as I continued seeing the story unfold, without any early give-away to its conclusion. With the many characters playing out the mystery, each had their own, distinct voice and image. Yes...image, because I was able to keep a clear image of each of them in mind, given the subtle, yet thorough descriptions as they were introduced. I've read a previous novel written by this author ("Birch Hills at World's End") and was happy to find this book had the ...more

FOLLOW YOU DOWN is a gripping crime novel set in a small Michigan town. The cast of characters is not surprising for the genre (bikers, drug dealers, kids from broken homes, various law enforcement types) yet not derivative of any single work. The writing is clear and direct with occasional flashes of brilliance. Most importantly, the author never over-tells the story. Defining characteristics are introduced but not relied on to define actions; rather they serve to inform the reader of why the c ...more

I could not put this book down! All my favorite mysteries have quite a bit of seam, and Follow You Down doesn't skimp on it! I know a book is good when I can see the camera shots in my head and from the first page I knew this was going to be a ride. I really dug how the world seemed so lived in and true. Besides the vivid compelling prose, Follow You Down features turns that I totally did not see coming. I'm telling you, one of those books that quickly go from "1 more page, I have to start makin ...more

Loved this book! This was such a fun read - lots of thrills and mystery and darkness, but expertly balanced with dashes of humor and truly likable characters. One of the leads is a very well fleshed-out female character that I loved, but the author also manages to create incredibly realistic teenagers and small town thugs, which drew me right into the seedy small town drama. I won't say much more to avoid spoilers, but this book kept me guessing right to the end and I would strongly recommend th ...more

Follow You Down hooked my interest within the first few pages, and never let up. I particularly enjoyed the diverse cast of characters and I feel like several of them could have a novel all to themselves. The dual point-of-view from two of the main characters was well done and made it interesting as the reader to have two sides of the story and see how the characters worked within just their own set of facts, knowing they were missing out on key elements that would likely have taken them down a ...more

This was the kind of book that I was sad when it ended. When I wasn't reading it, I was wondering what the characters were up to. The story was well paced - a lot going on, but not so much that your head was spinning, as sometimes happens in detective novels. The characters were all well developed and the writing style was clear, a little witty, but mostly focused on telling the story. Overall I enjoyed it a lot, even though though it's not normally the genre that I get into. ...more

Amazing characters, scores of lush locations, and a plot that doesn't stop. Very happy I sidestepped my usual genres and gave this a read. ...more

You'd expect a novel centered around missing camgirls, shady drug deals, and rough-and-tumble motorcycle gangs to be grim and gritty enough to leave you cold and cynical by the end. Not so with Follow You Down, a story more interested in the deeply human characters at its core than in any kind of exploitation or salaciousness.

Two characters in particular stuck with me: Russ McCreech, the wayward boyfriend of Bree Wells (whose sudden disappearance is the event around which the central mystery re
