About the Book:

Early one September, three friends spend the weekend at a remote cabin by Dead Water Lake. With only a pale moon to light their way, they row across the water in the middle of the night. But only two of them return, and they make a pact not to call for help until the following morning. Inspector Sejer leads the investigation when the body is discovered. He is troubled by the apparent suicide and has an overwhelming sense that the surviving pair has something to hide. Weeks pass without further clues, and then in a nearby lake the body of a teenage boy floats to the surface.

Rating: 2 out of 3 stars

I really enjoyed this book. It had just the right amount of drama, suspense and shock. We are hooked from the very beginning and it doesn’t let go until the very last page. This book does a great job and exploring human nature and just what an individual will do when he feels threatened. There was not on throw-away character written in which I like about this book, and every main character that was introduced was developed quite nicely. The pacing was perfect and the suspense was built to an art. The author has also mastered how to get us so emotionally tied to each character, that we find ourselves understanding where each of them come from and why they do what they do – whether we agree with them or not.

This is a quick, fun read. I have no complaints about it.
