P.D. Viner bursts on to the scene with a gritty and powerful crime thriller that explores the dark, dangerous line that separates grief, violence, loss, and revenge.Twenty years ago, college student Dani Lancing was kidnapped and brutally murdered. The killer was never found; the case has long-gone cold. Her parents, Patty and Jim, were utterly devastated, their marriage destroyed. Patty threw away her successful journalism career and developed a violent obsession with the unsolved crime.  She is utterly consumed with every lead and possible suspect no matter how far-fetched.  Jim, however, is now a shell of his former self, broken down and haunted—sometimes literally—by the loss of his daughter.  Tom Bevans, Dani’s childhood sweetheart, has become a detective intent on solving murders of other young women.  He was so scarred by Dani’s death that his colleagues have nicknamed him “The Sad Man.” After twenty years of grief, all of three of them are burnt-out and hopeless.But when Tom finds an opening on the case, everything changes.  Patty’s obsessions are lit up once again and she will do anything for revenge—even if it means dragging her whole family back into the nightmare, as lies and secrets are unearthed and the truth finally revealed.Told in fractured time, with a breathless pace and masterful plotting, The Last Winter of Dani Lancing is a superb thriller: swift, edgy, gripping, and unforgettable.

2.0 The Last Winter of Dani Lancing
This book was just not very good. With shifting points of view in the third person and no clear understanding of what was going on until the middle of it I found myself growing increasingly bored and just grossed out at times. We have four characters to keep track of in this book. Dani Lancing, her ...

3.0 The Last Winter of Dani Lancing
Dear Reader, This particular psychological thriller caught my eye from the "Before I Go to Sleep" reference in the blurb, a book which I really enjoyed. I find this genre can be very redundant and predictable which is why you don't find me running out to grab the "latest". I do however, LOVE a...

5.0 The Last Winter of Dani Lancing: A Novel
The story is masterfully told out of sequence. We travel back 20 years when Dani was alive and then to 2010, present time. We learn and know about Dani through memory flashes. And Dani, what a surprise she is. Dani’s mother, Patty, obsessed with finding Dani’s killer, does the unthinkable. How far w...

I love a good mystery but this one was, well it was not good. I found it to be slow and slightly repetitive yet as usual I wanted to find out whodunit. I also didn't like the jumping back and forth in time as I found that a little hard to follow. Received from NetGalley
