  "A CAN\'T-PUT-IT-DOWN Book" by ebach (see profile) 08/08/15

AS NIGHT FALLS is Jenny Milchman\'s third book. Although I\'ve read her first, I haven\'t read her second. It doesn\'t seem to matter if Milchman\'s books are read out of order. Each stands alone, even though the location and police are the same.

I liked Milchman\'s first book, COVER OF SNOW. I expected AS NIGHT FALLS to be just as good, but, SURPRISE, it\'s better. The story takes place (with several flashbacks) one evening (as night falls), one tense, seemingly endless evening.

Some would say they couldn\'t put the book down, they read it in one sitting. AS NIGHT FALLS really is that good, but let\'s be real: in the normal course of life, you have to put your book down, you have to get up to care for your children, answer the phone, clean the kitchen, whatever. But, I promise, when you put this book down, you will be anxious to pick it back up.

What a great book! I have only two problems with it that won\'t bother a less critical person.

First, Sandy\'s memory. Sandy is the wife and mother in this story. Without giving it away, I\'ll say only that I question her memory. I found it a little hard to swallow.

Second, some of the determinations made in this story are, I think, stupid. No examples because everything in AS NIGHT FALLS is better left a surprise.

Enjoy!

 
  "A binge read" by spreitzer50244 (see profile) 01/22/16

All the club members were enthralled by this book and found it hard to set down while reading. I read it through from cover to cover. The 2015 prison escape in Upstate New York gave this an added since of possible reality, even though the book was written well before that escape occurred.
