Review: Sorrow Lake by Michael J. McCann August 24, 2015

The original Netgalley review:

Cool to see a mystery novel set not too far from where I live. This one starts promisingly, then slips into a lot of expository lumps about Ontario Provincial Police procedure, then finally starts to increase the action and suspense. By the end I was glad I stuck with it, but it was a bit of a slog at times earlier on. With luck, the next book won’t need to establish quite so much of the procedural side of things or the introduction of a whole cast of characters. I’ll be willing to give it a shot.

That was a pretty short review, wasn’t it? Well, looking back, I think I liked it more than the above would suggest. I can still remember how I visualized some of the scenes and settings of the book, which is a good sign. Bring on the next one.
