Maybe I missed something
on January 21, 2011
I don't know what I missed, but I seem to be in the minority with this book. The book starts out quite interesting but loses it's wind somewhere in the middle, and never picks up. A young girl is missing after delivering Girl Scout Cookies. Her brother and some friends are the last to see her alive. Later, the girl's body is discovered in a place that has already been checked and the search for a killer is on. Not too far away is a man who has been raping and killing women, and a woman detective is on his trail. Next, we are back to the neighborhood and a 15 year old boy is a suspect. Everything was lightly touched on and for me, no loose ends were even attempted to be tied up. I realize if the killer didn't talk, then of course they couldn't know but, how about an attempt to give the reader a theory? Who were the three people in the driveway?, What was the killer's background?, Could the body have been there all the time and if not, how did it get there? I just felt there were things left out, that would have made this book a really good one.
