    PDF/EPUB 1st grade.co ¼ After I'm Gone PDF/EPUB ¼ After I'm PDF/EPUB or after pdf, gone kindle, After I'm pdf, After I'm Gone Kindle45 Stars Excellent mystery I love these sorts of suspense novels where layers are slowly peeled away to expose old family secrets The mystery concerns a cold case file starting from 1976 when Felix Brewer a bookmaker jumps bail and vanishes rather than face possible prison time He leaves behind his wife three daughters and a mistress The murder occurs 10 years later when the mistress turns up missing and eventually found dead The story is told in flashbacks

    PDF/EPUB 1st grade.co ¼ After I'm Gone PDF/EPUB ¼ After I'm PDF/EPUB or after pdf, gone kindle, After I'm pdf, After I'm Gone KindleThis story centers around Felix Brewer a man who chooses to disappear and the effect that choice has on his family The unfolding of their lives is told in bits and pieces with sections focusing on different characters and different time periods in order to tell the stories of those Felix left behind This plot device so effective in the earlier “I’d Know You Anywhere” serves here to jumble the story and make it difficult for the reader to find continuity Unfortunately I found this book far easier to set aside than to continue reading; I was never drawn in enough to really care about the characters or the events that had molded their lives It wasn’t until the end of the book that the plodding story actually became somewhat compelling The secret of who was

    PDF/EPUB 1st grade.co ¼ After I'm Gone PDF/EPUB ¼ After I'm PDF/EPUB or after pdf, gone kindle, After I'm pdf, After I'm Gone KindleLaura Lippman is one of my go to authors someone I read when I'm not in the mood to take a risk but just want to settle in with a good book that I know I'll enjoy Her standalone novels are always about how a crime can twist otherwise ordinary lives So I knew when I started AFTER I'M GONE that it wouldn't be a whodunnit or a snatched by a serial killer breathless suspense book Nevertheless I was still disappointed by the pace of this novel There is very little sense of urgency in the investigation of who killed Julie the girlfriend of a gangster who disappeared rather than face prison Julie's friends and relatives don't seem to care much The investigating detective works on cold cases to keep himself busy in retirement and treats this case as if it were a big NYTimes crossword puzzle

    PDF/EPUB 1st grade.co ¼ After I'm Gone PDF/EPUB ¼ After I'm PDF/EPUB or after pdf, gone kindle, After I'm pdf, After I'm Gone KindleI haven’t read any of the Tess Monaghan series by Lippman but I am a fan of her stand alones Her latest is back to form excellent character driven and providing substantial scenes that build tension without excessive police work or cat and mouse scenes This novel is of a study of people and families The police work reminds us that there is a cold case to be solved but it doesn’t take over the story There’s as much “why” maybe as “who”Widow and retired detective Roberto Sanchez “Sandy” is lonely and fills up his hours doing consulting work on cold cases
