Locust Lane by Stephen Amidon
Out now from Celadon Books

I don’t read a lot of thrillers, but this one grabbed me from the first page. There is the mysterious death of a young woman, a crew of secretive teenagers and their parents who are harboring secrets of their own. Throughout the book, Amidon expertly pulls at the threads of the mystery which binds all of these people together. The story is told through multiple points of view, but interestingly only those of the adults. I usually have a tough time when there are a lot of characters in a book, but I followed these plot lines quite easily.

Locust Lane is very much a slow-burn mystery, with the tension mounting in the last quarter of the book. I felt the ending was a bit unsatisfying but other than that this character-driven story is worth a read.

Thank you to Celadon Books for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
