    Great book!

    The Man From Primrose Lane by James Renner starts off with the gruesome murder of a recluse that had the odd habit of always wearing mittens. For years after the murder, David Neff, author of a best selling true-crime book, is asked to look into the man from Primrose Lane's mysterious death. Neff agrees and then the mystery begins to unfold. Neff is aghast to find that his deceased wife is somehow mixed up in the murder. Furthermore the clues are leading back to the horrific case he thought was closed years ago. Neff is driven by obsession, determination and compulsion to put all the pieces together before it's too late.
    The Man From Primrose Lane is a hauntingly good read. The story consists of a few disturbing details, such as the crimes of pedophiles and murderers, that are at times hard to read but it also makes the story line more dramatic. Renner doesn't go into too much detail concerning these crimes but enough to make your skin crawl. The story is told through flashbacks and real time. This method adds to building suspense in the novel.
    This is definitely one of the more interesting books I've read in some time. The ending wasn't at all as I expected. It has a twist that will leave your mind whirling. Renner will leave you speculating and gauging not only how the book would end but also as to who the real criminal in this book is. The Man From Primrose Lane is more for older audiences.

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a book that will be hard for you to sit down. The author really has a way with keeping you on the edge of your seat. It is a book that I will read again for sure.

    Not worth the time

    I liked the beginning and then it gets weird. I finished it because i had to know"who done it." I skipped to the end and was disappointed. It was more science fiction than mystery. I don't like science fiction and if you don't either, don't waste your time.

    disappointed

    This book started off so good, really drawing me in. Then the author started taking it off into directions that made it more of a science fiction read which honestly is not my thing. This could have maintained a great story line without having to go that direction. The only reason I finished the book was to see who "did it" - unfortunately, I'm still not sure.

    Start with a writer's quest to solve a crime that another man was executed for and the writer feels he can prove his innocence and show that the crimes were committed by someone els. So many other details emerge in his obsession with a series of crimes that I became completely absorbed in the story until part three started. I felt that I was transported into a Stephen King novel and the author did not have a good ending for the first part. I just could not wait to finish it at this point and it completed lost my interest. I just did not think it was appealing.
    I wouldn't be anxious to read anything else by this author and will not recommend this to my book club members.
