    One thought on “Dead of Winter

    1. Finishing a novel is one of the most satisfying feelings ever Not only have youachievedsomething in reading a book, but you have had a hopefully enjoyable experience as well Therefore one of my reading pet hates is not being able to finish a book, even if the reading the novel seems like one of Hercules mighty tasks, I still like to try and finish Therefore when I cannot complete a novel, I know that something is entirely lacking, whether the writing skill or the interest level.For me, Dead of W [...]


    2. Isabelle Mattias disappeared from St Anne s that was a popular school which parents thought they could trust the staff to care for and educate their children The school alerted the police just after midday when Isabelle failed to turn up for breakfast and when she failed to turn up for one of her classes It appears that Isabelle took no money or clothes and her passport was still in the school safe So where has Isabelle disappeared to Superintendent Fenwick interviewed teaches and pupils at St A [...]


    3. It is quite possible that finishing this book was one of my best personal achievement But for the sake of being objective, I will try to be constructive and fair The plot is about a girl, who comes from a multimillionaire family, an upper class whose biggest challenge was placed in a safari in Africa This girl thinks that it would be the best possible thing to have some romantic relationship with the married janitor of the school Afterwards, things go south and she kind of ends up being kidnapp [...]



    4. Excellent, gripping novel Corley is an absolute master storyteller The story is of Andrew Fenwick s search for the missing girl Fenwick and the police team are all very well drawn characters Issie, the missing girl, and even minor characters are flesh and blood people.I have read all the books in this series and have truly enjoyed all The only thing I wish is that I don t have to wait so long between the next book.


    5. Book was great Very interesting characters and edgy plot You could feel the winter cold while reading it It was not a mystery as pretty much from the beginning it was obvious who the villain was However it still managed to keep me interested until the last page Definitely recommend this book.


    6. This is formulaic in some ways A police hunt is mixed up with the complicated private lives of the police officers A short prologue leaves us wondering how this is relevant to the plot But the plot is reasonably original and well constructed, and the writing is good I remain dubious about the snow storm, however.


    7. This is the fifth book of a series by Elizabeth Corley which I found at the local library Detective Fenwick is believable and the novel which is set in the winter time just before Christmas when a student from a school goes missing.


    8. One of those books I didn t want to end, but couldn t stop reading to the detriment of the housework and other things I ought to have been doing Looking forward to the next in the series.
