Excellent writing for a first book! I enjoyed the development of the characters and the plot with a summer-in-the-south mood and atmosphere. Reminiscent of Turow. Great ending! I never saw it coming, but as a rule I don't figure out the end of books anyway. Dwells a little bit too much on the main character's introspection, but overall, a book I would recommend.
This is a can't-put-down book. I stayed up late into the night reading it. A totally different kind of lawyer/murder mystery story, but beautifully written, well-developed characters, some of whom are likable, some of whom aren't. I highly recommend this book.
An excellent first book by John Hart. Very intriguing with many twists and turns. You won't want to miss this one!
The first novel from John Hart was nominated for an Edgar award. It is a suspenseful murder mystery with unpredictable twists and turns. The protagonist (and narrator) is somewhat unlikeable, but overall the book is very entertaining.
a really great book! I could not put this book down. Very suspenseful.
