Four Corners of Night: . I have read all of Craig Holden's books and, while I loved all of them, I believe this was his best. It is well written and held my interest from beginning to end. What sets this apart from many suspense novels are the insights of the main character into his own behavior and their effect on the people and events in his life.

And for two cops, Mack Steiner and Bank Arbaugh--partners, best friends, fathers themselves--the girl's disappearance will hurtle them back through layers of friendship, memory, and loss. Because seven years before, Bank's own daughter vanished without a trace. And now, as police descend on the small midwestern city, as witnesses are grilled and evidence mounts, one case begins to illuminate the other. And for two men, a harrowing journey has begun--one that will test their long, complicated friendship and uncover a chilling truth about two missing girls, two shattered families, and at least one heartbreaking lie.From the author The New York Times hails as "astonishing" comes a spellbinding blend of raw tension and human drama--a masterpiece of suspense that races toward a devastating climax...then jolts us again with a final, unforgettable twist.

The characters in this book have a lot of internal dialog , which I appreciate but some may find it's slow going. The mood of the book is as important as the mystery. And a big twist towards the end which took me surprise.
Not the typical action packed police mystery. It's actually hard to describe., but well worth reading.

I have read all of Craig Holden's books and, while I loved all of them, I believe this was his best. It is well written and held my interest from beginning to end. What sets this apart from many suspense novels are the insights of the main character into his own behavior and their effect on the people and events in his life. I cared about all the characters and enjoyed the surprises that I didn't see coming. I think Holden is a wonderful author, especially since none of his novels resemble each other. With this one, the last couple of paragraphs were particularly touching and meaningful showing great depth of understanding of human interaction.
  • Bolanim
The book is really good but something happens with the editing. Whole pages of information are missing here and there.
It was fairly expensive as kindle books go, so I was surprised.
  • Carrot
Within the the first pages, reading a fairly standard scene about two cops having their breakfast interrupted by a call to a crime scene, I could tell that this book would be distinguished by the quality of the writing. Holden takes a gripping, but fairly standard plot, and wraps it with a meditation on family and friendship, cowardice and courage. He gives his character an extraordinary voice, and uses nuances of language and style to give the story a depth and subtlety rarely seen in thrillers.
  • Anasius
Did not really like this book that much. To many regrets in it. To much sadness. Definitely a depressing story.
  • Modifyn
Never expected the turn this story took. Even at that you are still left wondering. Read it and you decide.
  • Early Waffle
Good read!
Always looking for authors who give more than the standard potboiler. The characters are full and human and I believe them. They don't bore me.
