    PROTAGONIST: Julian Palmer, NYC police detective traineeSETTING: Upstate New YorkSERIES: #1 of 3RATING: 3.25WHY: Julian Palmer is a New York City detective trainee who has been assigned an internship in upstate New York. Her mentor, Winston "Bear" Edwards is about to retire. He has never had an unsolved murder in his entire career, except for a current case in which a young woman was murdered. Julian learns a lot from Bear, although she is surprised that he is willing to use a psychic since he seems almost psychic himself. He's rather an enigma, and despite their age difference she finds herself attracted to him. As the book goes on, just about every character becomes a plausible suspect--more than once. I grew weary of the back and forth of Person X did it, no Person Y, no Person X, no Person Z. At first it was exciting but ultimately it was all too much, and you couldn't begin to figure out the real villain with the information provided. Some excellent writing but also some clumsy writing with a page or more of 1 or 2 word paragraphs to build suspense.

    This book is compelling reason and evidence. Winston "Bear" Edwards needed a new assistant to learn the tricks of the trade of police work. What she knew would try to get her killed. It was rule one not checking the evidence that let her get away. She did her homework and caught the killer on his most important day.

    I thought this book was really good. It kept you guessing from the first page to last.

    I wasn't too impressed by this book. I didn't like the characters very much and I hated the writing style. There were a few details in certain spots that I really did not need to know. It also moved too slow for me. It's true that there are a lot of twists and turns, which is something I love in a book, especially in murder mysteries. I love being on the edge of my seat and constantly trying to figure out who did it. This book did provide a little bit of that, but in a very disorganized way. There were way too many suspects and it just kept jumping back and forth between them. It was kind of annoying.

    True northJulian Palmer travels north, to snow. In this journey, she brings her memories, her own unsolved mysteries. A teacher, an experienced law-man, famous and gifted, takes her on for an internship. They focus on a recent murder: gruesome, bloody, cold.The solution of who murdered Sarah Langley takes many twists and turns in Julian's mind, as she works with her mentor—works for him, works against him, too. And through all this, Julian grows by facing her own demon memories, by holding out for the truth, even when it hurts, even when it defies all she knows.This story is written on the backbone of the power of the unconscious becoming conscious; with that, a release of personal power to choose, to participate, not as a victim, but as a whole person–in the present and the future. In itself a thriller, it is a story of the personal growth of Julian Palmer, budding law-person as a character. A character a reader can anticipate being with in the future.

    I was hoping for a more dramatic, in-your-face ending from Palmer. Since she didn't deliver that, there was no high-end exciting response from the chief. The story was good, albeit predictable, and often humorous, with her flip-flopping over and over. I'm not being sardonic, because the author may have intended her flip-flopping to be humorous. She was soft through-out, even though the chief was a bully, and had the little town in control over 40 year's time. The whole story, the victims, the town, needed a hero from the beginning, and the hero turned out to be the villain's best friend/cop from a nearby place. I expected too much, but enjoyed what I got.

    This first novel is a great mystery. We spend too much time reading about the trainee's thoughts and fears and are rewarded in the end by having the entire mystery (and there are various parts to it) being all tied up. The reader can breathe a sigh of relief at knowing who is the guilty one who carried out "The Perfect Murder." A good read, especially for a debut novel.

    I found myself quite caught up in this story line and the psychological gymnastics going on between Winston and Julian. I definitely want to read more of this series.

    I like this author. I read Moving Day a few weeks ago and then found a couple other books by him. Fast moving, thriller type books.

    This is a good mystery with bone-chilling suspense for a small-town perfect cold-blooded murder with every twist and turn. What a rush!
