December Park

December Park - Ronald Malfi I did expect a lot from this book as Ronald Malfi is a fav author of mine. This is a coming of age story built around the murder and disappearance of a number of teenagers. I found the story a little overlong and within those 700 pages very little seemed to happen as the kids chased and cycled around on their bikes trying to find the murderer who they called the Piper...and that's it! So a little disappointed but as always RM kept me reading with his great style and ability to create believable and human characters that any reader can associate with.
