Summer People - Aaron Stander This is a crime/murder mystery. The scene is set with a murder that looks like it has been ordered by the mafia followed up by a lot of so called accidents. At the end the reader is introduced to the possible why, but there is no confrontation with the killer. There are no real explanations for the accidental deaths, aside from the fact that the killer must be an ex SAS super ninja to pull all of the deaths off. I found it lacking, the text was detached, stocatto and didn't flow very well. Some of the subplots seemed a little unrealistic. I think the characters can be made stronger, instead of just giving us a superficial taste of what they are like. The ingredients are all there for a good story, but it missed the mark for me. I think the frame is there for a better book, it just needs a bit of fine tuning.
