Sometimes things can get complicated. Life is like that. You never really plan for it, you never hope for it, and you never really know quite how to handle it. When something does happen, something unexpected, you make a choice and you live with it. Maybe your choice wasn't the best. Maybe you could have done things differently. But you made it, you can't undo it, and the next part is living with its consequences.

That, from my reading of All for One, is the essence of this wonderfully written and tragic tale of six children and their teacher caught up in the mystery of the death of a classmate. As you follow the course of this tale from their simple decision made at the beginning through the intricate web of its consequences, you too will find yourself drawn into it as I was. Each of the characters has his own story. Each is constructed by Pearson with a depth of detail that I found captivating. And each, as you will discover, is both intriguing and heartbreaking.

I was told before reading this book that it was "dark." As descriptive of a complex human tragedy, that is exactly what this story is. As such, you must be willing accept that there are dark places in the human soul, places that most would turn away from rather than glimpse. You must be willing to walk the path of fear and darkness to its end. And you must be willing to stand at the precipice and watch its conclusion with eyes wide open. If you are so willing, be not afraid, you will find yourself having read a truly wonderful book. When I have read a story of this power, I am left with but two words for the author. Thank you.

The cruel school bully gets killed. Six children discover his body, one of them may have murdered him. Detective Dooley Ashe, the Kiddie Catcher, tries to uncover the truth. Mary, the children's teacher, would do anything to protect them. With different goals in mind, Dooley and Mary form an uneasy alliance. As the story progresses to its tragic end, both Dooley and Mary are confronted with demons from their past.

As one of the reviewers pointed out, ALL FOR ONE is in part a story about choices, choices we have to make, sometimes under pressure, and how these choices have results that determine the rest of our lives. It deals with psychologically complex and flawed human beings. It is also a story about childhood abuse, injustice, and about good people who try their best and sometimes succeed and sometimes fail.

ALL FOR ONE is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in quite a while. The characters are convincing and portrayed with great sensibility. A fast-paced and well-crafted mystery, it leads the reader through a maze of events and flashbacks and unexpected twists to an amazing surprise ending. However, is not one of those contrived surprise endings of less successful thrillers. This ending, as unexpected as it is, is foreshadowed and makes total sense in retrospect.

Highly recommended. I look forward to more of the same author

I don't usually read dark novels. I tend to read predictable fluff. I like humor and a good romance. If this is you, you probably won't like this book. I, however, liked it a lot. It kept my attention. You can't read this book without total concentration. It changes characters from one paragraph to another. The characters are all deeply disturbed by something which is ongoing or in their past. I got lost in the characters many times and had to go back and try to figure out which of the students they are and who they belong to. The story is riveting. You find yourself cheering for the kids to keep the secret to themselves because the "dead kid" was such a bad seed. You think you have it figured out and something happens to prove you are wrong. The last quarter of the book ties everything together and there can be no happy ending when deaths occur.

I know that I seem to be the only review so far that did not enjoy this book. I am an avid reader and I enjoy a good mystery or the old who done it, but this particular book just did not entertain me at all. ITS very slow paced and there were far too many characters that we do not get to know very well. It lost my interest within only the second chapter.

This was a compelling, horrific, dark, tragic story. Like another reviewer, I was quite certain who had "dunnit" long before the end of the book, but that wasn't the end of the story. I was still compelled to follow through to the last page. I am glad I did. No matter how right I think I am, I could always be wrong.
The only thing that prevents me from a 5 star rating: the silly errors that should have been caught by a good proofreader before publication (I noted 14 while not looking for them. How many others did I pass over with just an eyeroll?). My son (Richard Veysey) is a writer and I read everything he sends me several times, including aloud, trying to catch the slightest error. We may never reach perfection but it should always be our goal.
Though it seems to be rampant, this problem is not confined to e-books. Several years ago, long before the kindle, I had to stop reading one of my otherwise favorite authors because his books had so many errors they became distracting and annoying and frustrating, especially since we had not waited for the paperback; we'd shelled out the $25 or so for the hardcover as soon as it was available at our local bookstore. Halfway through the last one I read I sent a message to the author via his website but had no response. If it meant so little to him, as the author, to get it right, I decided I did not need to support his work. Please, authors, show some pride in your product and respect for your readers. Don't put out just anything. Get it right.
