Editorial Reviews

Review

"High society meets homicide in the New Hampshire woods."

"As a debut novel, Varney's work is confident in its characterization and pace, taking time to build a world of privilege and expectation around its protagonist, who is neither as flawed nor as stealthy as he thinks."

"The most striking success is the creation of Harry Warren, a flawed man whose complicated inner life spawns the numerous personas he presents to the other characters, complicating their portrayals and enhancing their interest to the reader in the process."  - Kirkus Reviews

Format: Paperback
Do Unto Others by Robert C. Varney is outstanding. It is the kind of book you devour only to be saddened as you close in on the last fifty pages. Varney etches his characters with such depth that, even now, I wonder how they are doing. Set against a backdrop of rural New Hampshire, Varney deftly explores conflict - be it rich vs. poor, women vs. men, single vs. married, or lawyers vs. everyone else. His sense of humor permeates each page as he shares canny insights drawn from a lifetime of acute observation.

This book is a sleeper. I have heartily recommended it to family and friends. Take a chance on it, read it, and spread the word!

What a page turner! Varney wields his words well. Being a local author for us, we of course wanted to read this book. But .... This book is a national best seller certainly. Lovable and strong characters, a compelling legal case, great humor and it's share of twists and turns makes this one of the top books I've read this year. Take this new author into your home----you won't be sorry, and someday you can tell your fellow readers that you read it first!

Format: Paperback
This murder mystery is extremely well written. It held me in its grasp the entire way to the end. These are real characters in situations in which many people find themselves as they become entangled in the vicissitudes of life. How many mysteries are set in New Hampshire? Not many. This novel is a good one for understanding the politics, personalities, and struggles of people in small towns. Judge Harry Warren is a lawyer who aspired to greatness in his career and marriage and had to settle for less. The intricate machinations of the various characters leave the reader guessing who did the murder until the end. There is also a very humorous section that caused me to laugh out loud as I pictured the events happening. I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for an interesting and absorbing murder mystery.

A woman is murdered in the first 50 pages of this book, after she shows up and threatens to reveal old secrets. Her body is found in the woods, gnawed by animals, with the eyes plucked out. Then we learn . . . about the unsatisfactory marriage of a local cop, the unsatisfactory marriage of a local judge, a complicated set of shenanigans involving three lawyers, two batty old ladies and a trust fund, and more about "high society" and prep schools than you ever wanted to know. By the time you get past all this, you realize you can't remember who anyone is, and maybe you don't care. A basic rule of thumb for murder mysteries is that they need to focus on "murder" and "mystery." They also need to move along at a decent clip and are generally not over 400 pages long. This book is a novel, about not very interesting people doing not very interesting things, not a murder mystery.
