4.0 out of 5 stars Strong debut novel--I loved it!

His first murder trial is the case of the lost girls, two missing teenagers from Murdoch, an odd little town in northern Ontario.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost girls, Oct. 20 2003

This review is from: Lost Girls (Audio Cassette)
this book was a big dissapointment to me...it had the same basic outline as all the other mystery books...if u are an active reader then you will unscramble the mystery after reading 3-4 chapters and then be bored out of your mind at the attempt the author makes to make get you sucked into the story, when i was reading this book i would read trough a whole chapter and at the end find that the author had wanted me to feel a certain emotion but i just didnt feel it. overall for me this book was a waste of time and if i didnt have to write a report on it i would have put it down after the 5th chapter and picked up something else.a good mystery is something that keeps you guessing ... and interested in the book but if i had the choice i would put this book under the label childrens nightime stories because even little kids would not feel scared at this authors attempt of horror.
