I enjoyed William Landay's "Defending Jacob" so much that I had to immediately find and read _anything_ written by him. "Mission Flats" did not disappoint. Although not as well known as "Defending Jacob," I feel that this book is actually better: there are more characters, more action, more twists and turns, and a totally shattering surprise at the end.

I'm usually pretty good at figuring out "who done it" in mystery stories - not this time though. It was a total treat to be so wrong about where the story was going and to feel so shocked to realize that I had not known the characters at all until the end.

If you're bored with predictable mysteries you absolutely must read this one.

I wish I could give this book no star! This book was nothing like Defending Jacob, wish was a very good book...don't waste your time with Mission Flats.

Overall, I'd say I liked the book. I did find it engaging and at times hard to put down. With that said, some of the plot is unbelievable. Ultimately, a police officer from a small town in Maine, with little real police experience to speak of, makes his way to Boston to investigate a murder which occurred in his hometown that another agency has taken jurisdiction over. The fact that Boston PD and the DA's office essentially allows this small town cop access to all files and all aspects of their investigation is ridiculous. That's the part that turned me off to the book. I know it's fiction and I try to keep that in mind, but that part was just totally unbelievable. One thing in the end that irked me, and this may seem petty to some, is that there was a statement that reads "the glass was smudged with my ninhydrin-stained fingerprints". I have been processing crime scenes for 15 years, but one only has to have little knowledge of scene processing or fingerprinting to know that's a ridiculous inference. One would never process a glass with ninhydrin - ninhydrin is for porous surfaces like paper. Like I said, it may seem petty, but the author himself was an ADA and would have/should have known that. I think that statement was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Landay's other book, Defending Jacob was much better and I would give that book at least 4 stars. I do think the author shows great promise.

William Landay is a good writer. He brings you into this story and holds you until the end. Yes, there are more characters to track, but they were necessary.

A small town police chief gets caught up in a murder and finds himself going to the big city to solve the case. A female DA who catches his eye and crooked cops who seem to stymy his investigation. All somewhat cliche, except Landay keeps you turning the page with anticipation as to how it will all turn out. Isn’t that what a good mystery does?

Yes, until we get to the end. Without writing a spoiler, let us just say Landay tricks the reader. This is a first person narrative, and it turns out we have been lied to from the beginning. Well, maybe not lied to, but deceived. One of the first lessons in writing is do not leave the reader feeling tricked, Landay gets an F on that one.

This book will remind you of Dennis LeHane and Robert Parker, and had the potential of getting a five star review. Sadly, I give it three.

I recently finished "Defending Jacob" which was amazing, so I immediately downloaded the other two Landay books. The story of "Mission Flats" is well described by other reviews so I won't recap the details. I think that Landay is a very excellent author. I enjoy the way he writes as much as the complex stories and people he writes about. Initially Ben Truman seemed to be a pretty colorless character and his life pretty uneventful. As the story unfolded, it was clear that he was a complicated and surprising character and nothing is what it seems. I read several reviews before purchasing this book, so I knew that the ending was a shocker. I read all the time so I figured out all the possible surprise endings there could be. I was totally wrong! Landay does not write Hollywood endings. Although I like Hollywood endings, I think that the way Landay brings his stories to a conclusion have more depth and left me thinking about them long after I finished his books. I look forward to reading the third novel and all his future novels as well.

I read this after enjoying the author's 3rd book Defending Jacob. This is the story of an inexperienced small town police chief who gets involved with the murder of an out of town DA who has come to his community. The young police chief goes to Boston to join in the hunt for the killer. There are twists and turns and, as in Defending Jacob, the author draws us into the characters and we begin to see that that good people can do some bad things and bad people can have some good in them. I enjoyed this book even more than Defending Jacob and look forward to reading the only other book I could find by this author. I hope he will write more novels like this as I enjoy his complex characters and intelligent writing.
