    1. Gostei imenso deste livro Est muito bem escrito, transporta nos para o mundo interior dos personagens, faz nos sentir os seus dramas e acompanhar as suas raz es Mas, ao mesmo tempo, mant m a d vida sobre o verdadeiro culpado at ao final.

    2. How do you find someone who s not supposed to exist That s the detective s conundrum.Francis X Loughlin is losing his sight He s a cop, and because of the genetically acquired retinitis pigmentosa his future on the force looks bleak He s always been a loner so this means ever increasing isolation.Two decades before, Francis had been instrumental in the incarceration of Julian Vega for the murder of a woman Julian has been released following years of legal appeals he orchestrated, and soon therea [...]

    3. The story had the potential to be intriguing but I couldn t get past the smack you upside the head symbolism and cute imagery Also, it s a pet peeve of mine when white middle class authors try to write in AAE or Latino English dialect for their characters of color and wind up, at best, looking ridiculous and clueless and, at worst, horribly insensitive and offensive Overall, good on the whodunit part and not so good on the characterization dialogue part.

    4. I agree completely with the blurb from Stephen King on the cover One of the best books I ve read in a long, long time.In 1983, Detective Francis X Loughlin famously obtained a confession from a 17 year old male named Julian Vega for the brutal murder of a gorgeous, young, well liked young doctor named Allison Wallis Vega was convicted and sentenced to 25 years to life for murder.In 2003, Detective Francis X Loughlin is fairly rapidly going blind from retinitis pigmentosa He is still working homi [...]

    5. Samar samar dalam ingatan, saya pernah mengikuti kisah yang ini Entah di sinopsis, film, atau kisah nyata di serial Law n Order, atau justru cuma de ja vu Entahlah.Seorang remaja tak bersalah dijatuhi hukuman 25 tahun penjara dengan tuduhan pembunuhan Ketika mendapat pembebasan di usia 37, ia telah kehilangan segala sesuatu termasuk keluarganya Dengan sisa keyakinan yang ia miliki, ia coba telusuri kembali kasusnya Pelaku kejahatan yang sebenarnya pun terungkap dan ia akhirnya memperoleh hidupny [...]

    6. Ah, I loved The Intruder So original So far, this one is not disappointing If Stephen King says it s the best he s read in a long, long time, I ll take his wordIt is great I can hardly put it down, but I must Blaunder writes so well He s one of those authors who always chooses the right verb the most interesting one and the best description of his characters When I read other books alongside his, I m struck with how wordy they are in comparison.Ok, I m done with it It was good some of the writin [...]

    7. Man, I feel like this book is criminally underrated I absolutely loved it One of the best books I ve read in such a long time and no less than Stephen King said the exact same thing about this book Such a fantastic hook was the wrong guy sent away for a crime that was committed 20 years ago , the characters sizzle we follow the guy who d been locked up after he s released from jail and is trying to reacquaint himself with the outside world, and follow the main cop of the novel as he slowly loses [...]

    8. I hadn t read anything by Peter Blauner before, so I decided to give this a try It s an interesting story, but it s fairly obvious early on who the real criminal is I was disappointed that it was as easy to figure out as it was Also, as Marissa pointed out, much of the Spanish street talk sounds unnatural, somewhat forced at times It would have been better to have left it out.

    9. The suspense had me scared xxxxless Set my teeth on edge Could not put it down, although I wanted to throw it against the wall a few times Stephen King is right Best crime novel I have read in a long, long time

    10. Great book if you are into mysteries Keeps you guessing until the end A fast read since you don t want to put it down.

    11. The best contemporary writer I know As if Cormac McCarthy had written Les Miserables This is my second read of Blauner and I don t know how to tell you how great this guy is with the written word I can read his paragraphs and return immediately to read them again for pleasure I ask, is there anyone as good One example from hundreds As a main character stands at an apartment window musing and staring out into the NYC night, Blauner writes A passing bus below sighed, sagging with the loneliness o [...]

    12. Na contra capa fala de um desfecho inesperado para esta hist ria E podem crer que Thriller policial com bom andamento e que acima de tudo traz para a hist ria partes cient ficas que servem realmente de base ao desfecho inesperado Quem gosta deste lado mais cient fico, na abordagem a policiais vai sem d vida apreciar este livro.

    13. this one is an amazing story a case that looks like a case in the past and the DNA found was the old case victim one or two perfect crime that finally make sense what we know is not what happened how a perfect life a boy once had, one mistake from someone could lead to his destruction.

    14. plot twist nya bagus, sayang transisinya kurang pas satu elemen itu bisa ngurangin dua bintang yayway, buku ini berhasil membuat mimpi gue di 4 hari terakhir jadi suram dan mencekam, detail penggambaran latarnya ciamik lah.

    15. I enjoyed the book and would accurately would give it a 3 1 2 It has a lot of police procedures and not all positive or likable.

    18. My biggest mistake was having a high expectation for this book Gue pikir buku ini bisa jadi salah satu psychology thriller yang menarik untuk dibaca karena ngeliat rating buku ini cukup tinggi dan review dari orang orang yang sebagian besar bilang bahwa endingnya mengejutkan Well, turns out ngga ada yang spesial dari cerita karakternya, kasusnya, apalagi endingnya Jalan ceritanya begitu datar sampe gue harus maksa diri gue nyelesein ngebaca buku ini Untungnya sih menjelang akhir ketika kasusnya [...]

    19. Slipping into Darkness, by Peter Blaumer, B plus, narrated by Michael Kramer, produced by Books on Tape, downloaded from audible.It has been two decades since Detective Francis X Loughlin solved his first big case, the brutal murder of a woman doctor The young man convicted ofthe killing, Julian Vega, is back on the streets now, released on a technicality after years of appeals Not long after his release, another murder takesplace, one so similar to that long ago case that Julian is the first su [...]

    20. Slipping Into Darkness is a slow burning story that has its bright spots, but ultimately moved at a little too plodding of a pace.Blauner creates a compelling storyshell a possibly wrongly convicted youth grown up with a life wasted, a eerily similar crime years later, and a detective fighting uncertainty both professionally and physically It s those elements that kept me with the novel for so long Blauner has frequent moments of cutting insight to those around the narrative that gives those cha [...]

    21. This book told the story of a corrupt cop and an embittered ex con who had been convicted of something he may or may not have done and then released on a technicality The 2 protagonists are deeply flawed but somehow you still care about what s going to happen to them Who really murdered the young woman Dr who died 20 years ago, and is the same person responsible for the new murder of another doctor under similar circumstances Police officer Francis is certain that Julian Vega, the person he lock [...]

    22. I had mixed feelings about this book The story was good, with enough uncertainty to the mystery, but something about the characters didn t set quite right I did think that the picture painted of someone released from prison after 20 years trying to find their way in a new world was excellent All too believable, I m afraid No wonder there are so many repeaters in the prison system I had some trouble with Julian s character He was 17 years old, with a full college scholarship when he was arrested [...]

    23. it s not so thrilling but quite intriguing its a quest of a detective that assigned on a murdered case the one and only suspect was a 17 years old boy the ego of the detective put the boy in prison for twenty years a similar murder happen again when the boy got out from prison with arrogantly the detective tried to put the boy back in jail although he knew that there s no evidence the boy involved in the both murders in the end the detective caught the real murderer which nonetheless is the olde [...]

    24. Ler tudo em aminhaleituras 201 Este um livro que nos faz refletir sobre o custo de querer ser um profissional ou dar essa imagem , passando por cima de procedimentos, legais ou n o, de outras pessoas e do seu bem estar Um bom n vel de a o, a descoberta interior dos dois protagonistas o inspetor e o putativo criminoso , adensa a trama N o o livro que nos faz perder o f lego, contudo, desperta a curiosidade e vontade de o levar at ao fim.

    25. banyak kosakata baru yang aku dapet dari sini ceritanya standart ya, kayak novel investigasi gitu alur lambat detail yang dikasih merinci sekali tapi twisted akhirnya saya suka meskipun eksekusi ending kurang wah menurutku Karena harusnya pembaca masih bisa dikagetkan dengan fakta bahwa si pembunuh yang sebenarnya dengan aksi aksi lain kalau mau baca buku ini, pilih waktu yang bener bener senggang ya biar ngabisinnya cepet dan langsung paham D

    26. For fans of forensic suspense fiction Peter Blauner s latest book, Slipping into Darkness FIC BLA , takes a hard look at what happens when a person may have been unjustly imprisoned Set in New York City, the book s tone is dark and intriguing, with imperfect and interesting protagonist and antagonist characters who are both set on finding the truth LG
