    it must be really hard to write convincing mystery novels. you can't have your killer be too obvious or no one will bother reading past the third chapter. but you can't have them be too unexpected, without textual support, or you will be accused of cheating. the super-saturation of pol...

    If I could, I'd probably rate this at 1.5 stars-- it ultimately pissed me off, and annoyed me throughout, but it was good enough to keep me reading and I suppose that should count for something. Maybe my opinion has been influenced by reading THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO imme...

    This was an Edgar Award finalist, and that means a mystery, right? Well, we get a tease at the beginning--little boy survives some sort of mysterious mischief in the local woods, the two friends with him are never seen again, and when he's found his shoes are filled with blood and he's...

    I was disappointed in this novel, which seemed so promising at the beginning. The central mystery not only remains unsolved, but a disproportionate amount of the plot is spent on what seems, in the end, a total red herring. The narrator appears at the beginning to be a sympathetic, ...

    This book is amazing... really truly excellent. I took a risk at the UTEP library just picking this out at random... & what true serendipity it was!! This particular week was rife with parties & late nights (daytime reserved for sleep) and all throughout "In the Woods" was a fa...

    Seriously, man, I wanted to rate this book higher than two stars. I almost went with three, but I just can't do it. This book felt like it ran this long, exhausting marathon only to collapse into a heap, huffing and puffing just before it crossed the three-star line. Right now it's lay...

    "What I am telling you, before you begin my story, is this - two things: I crave truth. And I lie." This book is brilliantly cruel - a story of deep and painfully real psychological f*ckery masquerading as a murder mystery. There's nothing "feel good" about it. If you like a book ...

    Some wounds will never heal, and there will forever be a Rob Ryan-shaped scar in my heart. Some books are written deliberately to provoke sadness. It's fucking easy to induce someone to tears when the book is about a dying cancer patient with a labrador retriever whose leg has been ...

    Though the isbn is the same as the one pictured, my edition of this book has a much creepier cover and tagline: Needless to say, I was completely expecting something a bit dark and twisted, a creepy psychological murder mystery with an outcome I never would have seen coming. And...

    After much waiting and some significant 'biblio' peer pressure, I have finally decided to take the plunge into the world of Tana French and the Dublin Murder Squad. In the summer of 1984, three children went missing in the woods on the outskirts of Dublin. When authorities arrived, the...
