This is a "who dun it" and I couldn't figure out who did it. It jumped a bit too much between characters but it was a real wonder all the time.

A good read for an abridged book - nothing was lost in the interpretation. Enjoyed the story!

I thought this book was a compulsive thriller and it had me from the first page. It was a dark book with a MC that was sad and haunted. My first book by this author but not my last....

Whoa! This was like a roller coaster ride ... going up, up, up and then rapidly falling before coming to a compete halt. It takes a minute for your body to feel normal again.

Short premise ... young college men are being found drowned. Cops are sure these are suicides. One of the families hires a private investigator firm because they think their son was murdered.

There are lots of characters woven into and around the events taking place. There were a few times I had to stop and re-read a page or two. Convoluted plot. Interesting characters. A couple really bad guys.

The last few pages will leave you gasping. But the ending is like the end of the ride ... it just stops.... leaving you wanting something just a little more.

Too wordy and way way too slow, story needs to engage my attention within the first chapter at least (chapters are way way too long) and this one was just too wordy in the first chapter to get my interest and keep it, gave up
