Locust Lane by Stephen Amidon is a neighbourhood thriller set in Massachusetts.
A young woman turns up dead in the wealthy suburb of Emerson, Massachusetts. Three teens, suspects in the investigation, were partying with Eden Perry the night she died, but all claim to have left before she passed. The parents of these teenagers will do anything to protect them, including throwing the easiest target under the bus.
Review of Locust Lane
This slow-burn thriller has multiple POVs, all from the parents’ perspectives.
I was not into this at first, but eventually, I became more interested in the tangled web of lies.
The character development could have been better. I kept getting two of the female characters mixed up. Their names were anagrams of each other, which did not help me keep them straight. Also, some of them made silly choices thinking they were being super clever.
There are tons of more positive reviews for this title, so you may have better luck with it than I did.
My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
