Roy doesn't use one more word than she needs and her ability to generate suspense is impressive, especially for a debut novelist. There is a lot of violence and some raw scenes and the narrative sometimes is very suspenseful and quite bloody. Kansas itself seems menacing, with dangerous roads and tumbleweed that looks like a monster hanging from the fence. Due to the way in which census data was collected in Scotland, former SCE Higher Grade, Highers, and Advanced Highers are grouped together as "Highers" in the data below.Lori Roy’s debut novel, Bent Road, was awarded the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel by an American Author.

Bent Road [1] ( ISBN 978-0-525-95183-4) is a book written by Lori Roy [2] [3] and published by Dutton (now owned by the Penguin Group [4]) on 31 March 2011 which later went on to win the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by an American Author in 2012. But Little Evie soon becomes overwhelmed and haunted by the secrets of the adults in her family and in the small town near Bent Road by her resemblance to her dead aunt.

Bent Road is a long, winding journey, just like its titular street, where murder comes from love, friendship turns to ash and family bonds strengthen only through the worst sort of circumstances.Andrew's sister, Eve, died mysteriously 20 years before, and when the family arrives a little girl goes missing. INTEREST RATE TAKEN IN, CORRECT FROM THE PERIOD OF 01/01/2023 – 30/06/2023 AND IS CORRECT AS AT 04/07/2023. Roy’s writing is taut but descriptive, smooth but suspenseful, all carrying the reader effortlessly on to the next page. This odd, dark and often creepy tale of a dysfunctional community and a family that fits right in will keep readers wondering right until the last page.

It has a vaulted beamed ceiling, timber clad walls, underfloor heating, exposed stonework along with a freestanding roll top bath completing the luxuriousness. I completely agree with author Megan Abbott's praise of the novel: "Lori Roy transforms 1960s small-town Kansas into a haunting memoryscape. This book was easy to read, and although some reviewers noted that it needed a good editor, that didn't bother me too much. Back to Bent Road, I was most impressed with the author's ability to paint such a vivid portrait of late 1960s rural Kansas.In addition to all the above the author dwells with the acceptance of spousal abuse in a small community by its citizens and the church. In another scene, bits of dialogue were interspersed with description of a character trying to find a pie to serve. I think it was supposed to be suspenseful, but the way it was written didn't really build suspense for me at all. The story is built around this decades-old mystery about the "murder" of Eve, who has blond hair and blue eyes. Even though Libby, Dark Places' protagonist, is a horrible person and very unlikeable, she's INTERESTING, and the story keeps you reading because Gillian Flynn crafts a mystery that's focused and coherent.
