Book Review - Worst

It would be unfair to say I did not like this author. In fact, I really ought to put a Karin Fossum book on my reading list for this year so I can give her another shot. But I did not like this book. At all.

The Water's Edge started out as a nice enough crime drama. You know, like reading CSI. I really enjoyed reading from the perspectives of the various characters, until I had to read from the perspective of the bad guy -- a pedophile. Then it just got really creepy.

I don't think the book was trying to push a "pedophilia is okay" agenda, but there was still something oddly accepting about it, and I felt yucky reading it. This is definately one I'd put on the "do not read" list.
