Very good read.

This is a well written mystery/suspense sorry. Well rounded characters. Places defined. Story very well placed. Is girls death 20 yrs. ago, related to an horrific murder today? Not a deep intense story, but more a study of small town c

What was this??

Goodness. Don't know when I've read a more pretentious line of words. The story was very secondary to the silly musings of the author. Sounded a bit off. No way can I recommend this book to anyone. Put me to sleep each time I read a bi
