Grist Mill Road by Christopher J. Yates
ePUB | Mystery | 3.5 MB
Grist Mill Road is a dark and twisty Rashomon-style narrative which is expertly plotted.
The year is 1982, the setting an Edenic hamlet some 90 miles north of New York City. There, among the craggy rock cliffs and glacial ponds of timeworn mountains, three friends—Patrick, Matthew and Hannah— are bound together by a single, terrible, and seemingly senseless crime.
Twenty six years later, in New York City, living lives their younger selves could never have predicted, the three meet again–with even more devastating results.
Here is a triple helix of a story structure, a sharp-edged love triangle complete with an Atonement style revelation. Character-driven, gorgeously written and wrenching, it exposes the poisonous resentments, sexual longings, and reservoirs of violence that roil just below the orderly surface of small town life.
