First book I ve read by Declan Hughes, and his writing was good enough that I will go back for , even though in some ways I found this book unsatisfactory The book is part mystery, part thriller, and almost horror like in tone.Hughes is wonderfully skilled with his language, so there are some gorgeous sentences here His portrayal of a marriage gone stale and the POV of the main characters is really spot on And the book begins with an opening scene that absolutely grabs the imagination.The First book I ve read by Declan Hughes, and his writing was good enough that I will go back for , even

sentences here His portrayal of a marriage gone stale and the POV of the main characters is really spot on And the book begins with an opening scene that absolutely grabs the imagination.The plot keeps you guessing, but the many red herrings slow down the pace, although they do up the suspense and tip the book towards being a thriller These plot twists also stretch credibility in a way that doesn t quite mesh with the down to earth character portraits of the protagonists To keep the action going, all the characters make some very strange choices, and the behavior and motivations of the villains doesn t quite add up Granted, it s hard to explain true evil Hughes comes close but doesn t quite capture the feel of its American setting By the end, I felt as though I d wallowed in a horror tale rather than a mystery.I m not a horror fan, so this isn t what I was looking for However, the reviews lead me to believe that Hughes other books havecharacter development, and the writing was interesting enough that I ll definitely give Hughes another shot I am a big fan of Hughes Ed Loy PI series so I was disappointed in this thriller effort.The basic plot holds promise who seeks revenge from the events of Halloween night 35 years ago And the dynamics of a stagnant suburban marriage are presented well.But the twists and turns and keeping score became too much after awhile.And points off for so many britishisms in a book that takes place in Madison, Wisconsin and Chicago surprisingly sloppy.I will look forward to Hughes getting back to wha I am a big fan of Hughes Ed Loy PI

nightmare that reaches its terrifying climax thirty five years later This was my first time reading this author It was a library book I chose this book thinking it would be a spooky read for Halloween and the readathons It was set at Halloween, both past and present I liked Claire and Danny, even when I was unsure about who and what they really were I even liked Donna and Charlie, maybe because they were, at least, honest and accepting of who they were The plot was fairly twisty with lots of potential suspects and nobody to truly trust Then came the explos This was my first time reading this

you no reason to read the book I think you should read it I was devouring the last third of the book Why then 4 Stars I wanted to knowabout someone though if the author chose to make a guess true, I would have felt like punching him in the nose But to me, that s a pretty good thing It means the author did his job For me, the best books are those that invite me in to the story, make me forget reality and make me feel You don t punch people, even in fantasy, unless you are feeling Deeply feeling He lost a star because I ll be forever wondering It s almost like a punch Read the book This book started out pretty slow, but by the end I couldn t put it down as I wanted to see how it played out It had a bunch of twists and turns and walked you through the story in the eyes of a number of the characters in the book. I would not normally givethan 2 stars to any book that kills and mutilates a dog in the first chapter, which was totally unnecessary to the story or plot However, I was forewarned in the pre release press and cover flap and everywhere else, so it s my own fault Other than that, it was well done, suspenseful and unfortunately like that last book I read, not all that hard to figure out. I thought this would be good, and I did enjoy the fall weather descriptions, but what I read was a rambling mess I have no desire to even make a decent attempt at finishing it. The plot wasn t bad but too unbelievable It needed some editing, also.
