Overview

Julia and her family may have escaped the rent trap... but curiosity has drawn a predator home.
@When Julia Henry@s former neighbour plunges eight stories to her death in the snow, she@s convinced her previous landlords harassed the woman to suicide. But when she investigates, another dead girl turns up.
@The half-empty building is hemorrhaging tenants, the girl@s boyfriend comes complete with a wife and daughter, and the best friend overdosed days after giving police their only description of a serial rapist.
@Now it seems someone wants Julia buried under the heaviest blizzard in thirty years. But when one of her daughters narrowly escapes a brutal rape steps from home, two nightmares converge and Julia goes from shaken to livid.
@The only way she can protect her girls and still live to see the snow melt is to expose the wrenching truth behind the rapes, the deaths, and the strangest absentee landlord ever.

    This story really touched me. The lead character, Julia Henry, i

    This story really touched me. The lead character, Julia Henry, is very likeable, very human, and familiar (as in a familiar friend). She has realistic thoughts and reactions, so she comes across as a normal person navigating some abnormal circumstances as best she can. The supporting characters, for example Matt, Bergeron, Geneviève, also come across as realistic. The Julia – Matt – Geneviève dynamic also comes across well, perhaps more because this is how people should behave more than how they usually behave.
    One big part of this book is the atmosphere. Small towns can switch between warm and comforting to claustrophobic within seconds and the author captures this feeling completely. After moving from one small town to another, I find myself constantly being surprised by familial connections and friendships that are not apparent unless you are a life-long resident. In some ways the tone and setting of this novel reminded me of the movie Fargo. Not the characters, the tone or the way I reacted to the tone.
    Another aspect of this book is that the plot and references are so well crafted. There were several places in this book where the plot could have collapsed, or a coincidence was needed to move the action, and yet the writing carried you along without feeling contrived. It is also clear that the author not only observes people, but questions why we do the things we do. This makes the characters and the reader do so as well. I recommend this book as much as any I have read, and more than most. I think you will as well.

    Good

    I was about to give up on it at first as it was very boring at the beginning, but it finally got interesting although there were some things not resolved at the end which was disappointing. A large part of the story was centered around this particular plot point and the author just forgot about it. Bad form.
