    This book was not good, but I couldn't put it down! It's cliche characters and clunky dialogue only bothered me for the first 30 pages or so, and then I was hooked. The plot is totally convoluted but that's part of the charm...it kept me guessing and I'm still confused! Most of my enjoyment was probably due to the Maine village setting (very similar to where I live) and the fact that it was written by a local author. I can't recommend it, but I did enjoy it. Shelving this one under guilty pleasures.

    A belter of a thriller, and one of the few books that I put down so that it would last longer. The author manages to create a Superbitch who rivals any I've come across for wanting to see her get her comeuppance! More twists than Karen puts in her hair when she's stressed, that rattle along at such a pace you never question them. Even although things probably wouldn't work out as potrayed, I found myself not caring - never mind the detail, get on with the plot!

    Mike is a friend, and I'm fortunate beyond words to have been asked to review his manuscripts before he has submitted them. I'll never forget Undone, which arrived at our house and sparked a rivalry between Pete and me as we grappled for pages. "Are you done with that page yet???" Fantastic book that captures smalltown Maine and some devious, flawed characters, all wrapped up in a thriller.

    Really enjoyed the book. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat! The only thing that kept me from rating this 5 stars was the over abundance of characters and subplots....too much. Had this been whittled down a bit the author could continue to develop the plot and characters (bobby and Alston) a bit more. I would definitely recommend it!

    Although this was an intriguing story that kept me guessing right to the end about who murdered who, I could not connect with any of the characters and thought they were very two-dimensional and stereotypical. I didn't like any of the characters at all. Credit to the author for keeping the mystery ongoing throughout the whole story.

    Never trust your friend....or maybe even your wife...with your life. Being buried alive (closed casket funeral), to be dug up by friend and wife before your oxygen tank expires so as to collect your own life insurance and to start a new life, is not for the faint hearted. ...especially when your friend and your wife have a thing going. Great story!!!

    This was a great suspenseful thriller. I never knew where the characters were going or what they would be doing. There were several murders and just when I thought I had it all figured out, some twist made me realize that until I read the last page, I wouldn't really know who the culprit was. A real entertaining read!

    Second time reading it. Was going through my books to donate to Library and saw this and couldn't remember the ending.This is a great book - love the characters, even the ones you are suppose to hate. A book that's hard to put down.

    Great thriller--beautifully written, with quirky, well-drawn, memorable characters and twists aplenty. A simple (yet clever) premise that unfolds with layers of increasing complexity and intrigue with each turn of the page. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of Kimball's work!

    It was very well-constructed and the pace was akin to Stephen King. There were a couple of characters that were kind of caricatures, but some that really rang true to Downeast Maine. I enjoyed it a lot. A perfect vacation murder mystery/thriller.

    The Stephen King 'seal of approval' is this book's only redeeming feature. After a half decent opening chapter, it quickly turns into a hotch potch of inconsistent and unnecessary characters and plot twists. Disappointing.

    I happened to pick this up in a charity shop & once I started reading just could not put it down. I can't remember all the twists & turns now but it is a book I will go back & read again someday.

    Another book I've just re-read. Great story, great suspense. Very descriptive and richly written. So many subplots that all come together and make sense at the end.

    Unbelievably gripping. When I wasn't reading it, I was trying to figure out what was going to happen next.
