The characters are pretty phenomenally put together. They're realistic and you find yourself empathizing with them. Most of them. Each is intriguing and carries heft as an individual.
The murderer...what can I say? I'm terrified to send Christmas cards now. Don't worry, that's not a spoiler! It does take quite awhile to figure out who had motive, means and opportunity. The way that Rabe was able to get into the killer's mind was fantastically fun. I never saw it coming.
If you're looking for a fun murder mystery this holiday season, I can't suggest this one enough. You'll find yourself devouring page after page. It's not just about solving the murders, but also an urge to see what happens next and who's going to do it. I'll admit, I fell in love with this little town and I'm anxious for Jean to hurry up and finish the second book so I can jump into it.
Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised by this book which is Jean's first attempt, to my knowledge, in the mystery/suspense genre. Jean has been a prolific author and editor best known for work in the field of fantasy/science fiction. I have read many of her stories and novels in that area and have always enjoyed them.
I read other genres as well. Over the years; I have also enjoyed books by: GK Chesterton, Arthur Conan Doyle, Ed McBain, Mickey Spillane, David Baldacci, and numerous others. When I hear that Jean was writing a mystery, I was thrilled. When Jean later told me, rather cryptically, that I was an inspiration for a key part of the novel I was somewhat shocked. I had no idea how I could have inadvertently contributed and when I found out from reading the novel I laughed out loud.
Jean's writing is nearly flawless. The plot is intricate, the characters are completely fleshed out and the story moves along at a brisk pace, never failing to keep the reader involved. Who could ask for anything more. I understand there will be an audiobook version of "The Dead of Winter" and am looking forward to hearing that. I have also found out that Jean is currently completing a follow-up to this novel and am anxiously awaiting its publication.
