An intriguing story of the nature of truth, memory and the workings of the mind set against the background of a murder. It is not what I would call a mystery, but a good read nonetheless.

More than just a mystery (and the mystery is intriguing), A Dangerous Road gives the reader a true sense of Memphis in 1968. Plot, characterization, dialogue, atmosphere, this book has it all.

Obviously I'm a minority of one. I hated this book, and I find it amazing that others are recommending it for dog lovers. How maiming and torturing a dog to satisfy one's own self obsession makes it a "touching love story" is beyond me. (And just as a side note, you must have language first in order to form and retrieve memories.)

McKenzie is a former cop, now an unlicensed P.I. in the Twin Cities. Sounds like a hundred other mysteries -- but it's not. Mac is real people with real strengths and real weaknesses. And this is one heck of a great story.

First book in the Carson Ryder/Harry Nautilus series. One of the better entries in the psychotic-serial-killer genre. Kerley actually spends more time on character development than the slice-and-dice which makes for an extremely well-written suspense novel.

#1 in series. From back cover: Exiled to seaside Eddathorpe in November, Detective Inspector Robert Graham expects to have lots of time to brood about his failed marriage and his formerly promising career. Instead he finds himself drawn into the Draper case, and unwittingly taking the lid off a surprising variety of old scandals. Some of which involve senior policemen...
