From Publishers Weekly
Murder at Walden Pond: A Steve Asher Mystery, Al Blanchard's first book, introduces series hero Asher, a well-intentioned middle school teacher accused of murdering his student's sister, Susan Oliver. Lies, multiple motives, break-ins, another murder and the Oliver family's mysterious ways keep the police and Asher guessing until the very end, when Asher's search for the killer puts him in mortal danger.

From Library Journal
Two weeks after a young woman speaks with eighth-grade history teacher Steve Asher about her troubled younger brother Petey one of his students Steve finds her body in Walden Pond. Police suspect Steve when they hear rumors of a relationship between him and the woman and read her diary depicting a fantasized love affair with him. As his job and relationships begin to crumble, Steve hastens to the offensive: a local gubernatorial candidate seems to have much to hide. Unfortunately, the narrative lacks conviction, the plot lacks depth, and the characters lack appeal. Pass.

Murder At Walden Pond kept me interested from the beginning never quite figuring who was the culprit......so I stayed with it. All of a sudden 2/3 through the book, I found I could not put it down! Everything was happening so fast, I found myself reading faster. Al Blanchard now joins my library of Robert Parker and James Patterson! A great read.
