Great read! Once I started, I couldn't put it down until I finished. The characters were well developed and the story well written. By the time I finished, I felt like I'd known the central characters for years. Looking forward to the next book!

Something In The Dark By PJ Cowan

This is a “who’s doing it” type murder mystery thriller that keeps the reader guessing who the killer is all the way through.
There are plenty of red herrings to throw you off and at one point I had 4 suspects in mind.
About halfway through I realised something that the author had done, which is done in films of the same genre on a regular basis, which told me who the tormentor was.
I can’t say more than this without spoiling the story.

There are a couple of other points in the story where the author has followed the typical “film” plot but even with this, you question yourself as to whether you’ve got it right or not, until the Author is ready to reveal.

The story starts off quite slow as the author sets the scene and introduces us to the characters but the pace picks up once the killings begin.
A great story with good, indepth characters.

I look forward to reading more books by PJ Cowan.

Fantastic story. Full of suspense. Kept me guessing whodunit clear to the end - and I was wrong. P.J.Cowan is a master at suspense and mystery as well as with her descriptions. I could actually believe there is such a place as Blue Spruce, Oregon. It was as though I had been there when I had finished the book. This is a great read and pulls you in quickly.

Review by: Lisa Cromwell on June 25, 2011 :
P.J. Cowan is master of the red herring. Several times while reading this thriller, I felt I solved the whodunit, because I followed the false trails laid down by the writer. I should have known better - clever Cowan distracted me so much that only when the author revealed the murderer did I know the truth. Cowan's descriptions are evocative - each word is a gem - her sense of place, perfect. I could not put it down - I stayed up all night reading it, because Cowan made me care deeply for the characters and I just had to know what happened to them. This is a great read for all who love great characters and adore suspense. By Lisa Cromwell, college professor and long-time journalist.
