I won this book in a giveaway on a reading blog and this is my honest review. Bryant's Gap by Michael E. Burge is a stand alone mystery. I don't usually read mysteries, but I was intrigued by Michael's writing style. The characters pulled me in as they were so real to life. I'm impressed with the vivid descriptions, as if I were there in 1947 postwar Chicago. This is definitely one of the best book that I have read this year.
