For a Verdon that s a Gurney, this one is long For me, because I particularly like psychological thrillers than just the standard mystery who dun it, the beginning and quite into the core it was nearly a five I had hopes it would be Certainly the tension of the first 150 pages was to the can t stop reading levels.And then it wasn t Because the Wolf Lake Lodge itself got so ridiculously unusual and Madeleine Mrs Dave Gurney became even passive aggressive irritating than average for the series I [...]
Wolf Lake is the latest installment in the Dave Gurney series This is a novel with a great hook Imagine four strangers living in four different parts of the country who all apparently committed suicide after having the same nightmare The one thing these four strangers share in common is that each of the victims prior to their death met with a controversial psychologist, Richard Hammond, at a thousand dollar a night resort Verdon really weaves a fantastic story even if at times it mixes elements [...]
This is the fifth Dave Gurney book Other than the fact that a retired NYPD would be drawn into such complex cases is a little far fetched, the stories are very interesting and well plotted I like the tension that Verdon has created between Gurney and his wife, this is something one would expect for a couple that is continually drawn back to a life they have given up.I look forward to the next Dave Gurney book This review was originally posted on The Pfaeffle Journal
THIS WAS GREAT
Review WOLF LAKE by John VerdonWhat a deep, compelling, and riveting mystery I consumed with avidity Although this is the fifth in the series, it s the first I ve read although I own the first, THINK OF A NUMBER Author John Verdon delivers the equivalent of a multitude of locked room mysteries not just one, but four suspicious deaths, of seemingly unrelated individuals in different geographic regions Then the single known connection is a genius, neurotic, paranoid, hypnotherapist His development [...]

The plot plays out in latest in the latest Dave Gurney thriller at Wolf Lake Lodge, in the remote Adirondacks It is certainly not without a tantalizing history Shortly after it became an inn in the early 1900s, wolves devoured its founder on the property The entire setting screams gothic horror starting with the raving gray man carrying an axe and raving about a hawk that knows evil The inn itself reinforces this concept with it s creepy vestige standing in the shadow of two mountains with names [...]

Number five in the Dave Guerney series did not disappoint, but I don t think any will affect me like the first, which I thought was absolutely brilliant Intricate mystery solver, decorated ex NY state police detective now retired, takes on the mystery of why four people could commit suicide in the exact same manner after having the exact same frightening dream The cast of characters is not really large, so solving the mystery isn t hugely difficult if the reader s paying close attention Good sto [...]

Creo que es el que menos me ha gustado de los 5 Tambi n soy m s exigente que cuando sac el primero A n as creo que incluso los personajes mismos est n ya cansados Le ha dado demasiadas vueltas al misterio de este caso, para intentar ocultar algo bastante previsible y lo ha enrevesado demasiado para tal final, que no me ha gustado No he simpatizado esta vez tanto con Gurney y con esta nueva Madeleine desquiciada Promet a el tema y la ambientaci n pero

La quinta entrega de las aventuras de Dave Gurney vuelve a subir el nivel Un buen misterio y una gran ambientaci n son sus puntos fuertes Me ha mantenido enganchado y es lo que le pido a este tipo de novela, as que le caen cuatro estrellas.
What crueler and wicked way could you kill a man than make him kill himself Actual rating 10 5 stars Cause that s how bloody good every John Verdon book is.I haven t got the chance to write reviews at the time I ve read his first four books and it s been ages since I ve done that, actually I remember now the anticipation that I had for his next book and the years that passed till it got into my hands And now I can say that it was worth every second of waiting.First when I started reading books, [...]
Ya van cinco entregas y sorprendentemente en esta ltima mejora bastante Parece que Verdon se ha dado cuenta de lo repetitivo que iba siendo la estructura de sus novelas desde el segundo tomo y ha decidido cambiar el escenario.Y ese hotel donde sucede todo es precisamente lo mejor del libro, como tambi n que le da m s peso a la mujer del detective, cosa que se agradece porque la relaci n entre ellos en otros libros no era apenas cre ble.Si eres seguidor de esta saga te va a gustar Pero tambi n en [...]
Book 5 in Dave Gurney series Much better than last one in series Much of Dave s thinking about the case and sorting out the evidence Loved the backdrop I also enjoyed seeing a different side of his wife Looking forward to the next one 5 stars

July 18th 2017This book is so slow Perhaps I m just not focused enough, but I ve had to relisten to parts of it several times Today I m starting over from the beginning I m not sure how I feel about that yet To be continuedFinished and not a day to late I can t say that I enjoyed this book at all It had a few moments where I thought it could be good But then it shot me down Just by reading the description, this sounds like a good read But sadly, there s way to many pages of nonesense between the [...]
A la altura de la primera entrega de la saga, John Verdon no vuelve a defraudar como pas con el segundo libro Si bien hace de Maddie un personaje mucho m s complejo, se sigue dejando ver la tendencia de personaje co azo que no es que desarrolle, sino que parece ser algo inherente a ella La relaci n Gurney Hardwick, como siempre, brillante al igual que la resoluci n del caso ese giro de la trama que a ade en cada novela, tan caracter stico de Verdon, que siempre te pilla desprevenido No obstante, [...]
John Verdon dan harika bir kitap daha Kendisi polisiye gerilim t r nde en be endi im 3 4 yazardan biri ve u ana kadar yazm oldu u 5 adet kitab n hepsini okudum ve bir tanesine bile bu olmam demedim iddetle tavsiye ederim.
