Grist Mill Road
1982 "There, among the craggy rock cliffs and glacial ponds of timeworn mountains, three friends—Patrick, Matthew, and Hannah—are bound together by a terrible and seemingly senseless crime."
(from book description)
2008 The three meet again.

Christopher J Yates took me for quite a spin with this novel.
I did audio and had a hard time finding a stopping point as
I found myself becoming very involved in the story.
Time lines alternated and just when I was getting a feel for a character, Yates would open a new dimension and the character would morph into a more complicated individual and the story assumed a greater degree of complexity.
One moment I was devastated and the next enriched.

Dark, incredibly intense and I dare you to remain aloof
from this trio.

Audio added a quality that intensified the experience for me.
