    Hard core mystery

    This book is about 580 pages long. It was pretty well edited for a freebie. It is a hard core mystery. There are no soft edges to this plot. This book deals with suicide, spouse and child abuse,pediphilia, sexual attraction to the dead, alcohal and drug abuse, insanity, rape, extremely violent, graphic murder, graphic sex, arson, hit and run, revenge, adultry, animal abuse and racial bias. There is also romance. About the only thing this book lacked was an over abundance of cursing, which I am not complaining about. I have probably left a few out, but these are the main ones. There were a few minor editing problems. Some of the B & N free books are almost unreadable because of errata, so it is nice to find none or just a few mistakes. ( none, never happens.) The plot was good, I knew early on, whodunit, but as the crime rate at Green Lake continued to climb, so did the whodunits. This book really held my interest. I started reading it at 9 P M and finished at 3 A M. It was fascinating. I would recommend this book to male and female readers, 18 years of age and up.

    Mixed reaction

    Great conflict between two main characters. Loved the qirky and creepy characters around green lake. Wonderful growing connection and sex between the two. Hated the too graphic perverted descriptions. Hated the perverted ending. It was like the author could not make up her mind between a modern love story with culture difficulties and a story about grisley violence and perversion.

    Wow....

    OMG! This was one of the best free books I've ever read! I will say its not for the feint of heart, it deals with issues that many readers will not feel comfortable with such as adultery, murder, kidnapping of a minor and pedophilia, amongst many other subjects considered taboo. All of the characters were very well described, the story flowed nicely and I mostly enjoyed how both main characters were far from perfect. Eris was not the perfect specimen of a man, the sexual interaction was fumbled and far from ideal but it was how real people do it, it got better as it progressed....very realistic! I gave it only four stars because there were a few grammatical errors and the book just sort of abruptly ended, that was a bit disappointing. Outside of that it was a very interesting and engaging read!

    Great book!

    I just want the author to know I would gladly pay to read more from you! Yes, this book was free, but it is very long and very well written! Sit back and get to know the creepy residents that live year round at "the lake"!

    Terrible and Nasty

    I loved the story line between the 2 main characters. But the rest of the book was nasty and poorly written. A man who mastubates on a dying person, really? Nasty. Racism was rampant as well. A 3 yo was killed with semen in her stomach and the reader was made to read about it several times, yuck. I am a lover of books and hate to write a negative review but this book was nasty. Why not just stick with the romance between the 2 lead characters? I really wonder about the sanity of this author. Bottom line, I finished the book but would never read another by this author.

    Great book

    To all those people who bit@#$d about the abrupt ending, what more do you want! Allthe loose ends get tied up and the perverted antagonist gets exactly what he deserves, as do both protagonists...oh and this book is not 600pages!! Its under250!

    I thought this was a very good story, held my interest all through the story, it was well written and I would read more of this authors novels.
    I found this book in the free section, well worth reading. It is over 600 pages, but worth it.

    Good read!

    A little slow starting off but built quickly to a page turner I couldn't put down. A little graphic at times but the story and characters kept me hooked. Will definitely be reading more by this author.

    Excellent read!

    I had read the reviews and almost DIDN'T read it as l don' t like smutty books. The sex was not the graphic " how to" scenes, even the pedophilia section was not great in detail or length for which l was pleased there was restraint here. I read this in one day in three sittings. A fast read that was difficult to put down. I would recommend this to any adult thriller loving reader.

    GREAT READ!

    I buy a lot of books on my Nook that are free or really cheap. Some are okay. Others are not so much. Most have errors, grammatical and/or spelling. However, this was a really good book. The author knows how to keep you invested in the story and the characters are easy to love or hate. I thought this was one of the best books I have read in a while and I'm a chain reader. The only thing that I thought could make it better is if the author had used the chapters better. Too often the story scene would change from one person(s) and location to another person(s) and location right in the middle of a chapter with no warning. I feel it would have been better if they would have been differentiated by starting a new chapter, which is pretty much what the good authors do. This is the only bool I have rrad by Epperson so far (definitely not the last) and my gut tells me he/she is a good author.
