Reviews - What do customers think about Page One: Hit and Run?
Hit and Run is a Hit Nov 28, 2006
Michigan's Upper Peninsula is an unusual setting for a mystery novel, yet that is the least reason Nancy Barr's first book is unusual. Mystery novels rise and fall on two things: believable characters who act like real people, and details that bring the story to life. Page One: Hit and Run introduces new characters in the early chapters, but hits its stride quickly, partially because of the author's crisp and direct style, and partially because Robin Hamilton swiftly comes to life on the pages. Ms. Barr presents enough detail about the Escanaba area to bring it to life for those not yet lucky enough to have visited there, and to ring true with those who have. She adds character details almost surreptitiously, with a fine sense of what the reader needs to know at the moment. I genuinely liked the book and read most of it in a single sitting. I recommend Page One: Hit and Run as an exciting and readable entry novel for those new to the mystery genre and as refreshing fare for those tired of plowing through ponderous page turners.
