The Last Winter of Dani Lancing: A Novel | [P. D. Viner]

The Last Winter of Dani Lancing: A Novel

For fans of Tana French and The Silent Wife, The Last Winter of Dani Lancing is a chilling debut thriller hailed by Sophie Hannah as "brilliant" about one murder's devastating ripple effects.

Twenty years ago, college student Dani Lancing was kidnapped and brutally murdered. The killer was never found. Dani's family never found peace.

Thrust into an intense devastation that nearly destroys their marriage, Patty and Jim Lancing struggle to deal with their harrowing loss. Patty is fanatically obsessed with the cold case; consumed by every possible clue or suspect no matter how far-fetched, she goes to horrifying lengths to help clarify the past. Meanwhile, Jim has become a shell of his former self, broken down and haunted - sometimes literally - by his young daughter's death. Dani's childhood sweetheart, Tom, handles his own grief every day on the job - he's become a detective intent on solving murders of other young women, and hopes to one day close Dani's case himself.

Then everything changes when Tom finds a promising new lead. As lies and secrets are unearthed, the heartbreaking truth behind Dani's murder is finally revealed.

The Last Winter of Dani Lancing is a shockingly disturbing and deeply powerful debut, and P.D. Viner immediately joins the ranks of Tana French, A. S. A. Harrison, and Gillian Flynn.

    "Horrible performance"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I found it impossible to get to the end. The obtrusive, melodramatic performance made me cringe.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Just read the book and quash the sound effects and melodrama.


    What didn’t you like about Various’s performance?

    Nothing.


    Do you think The Last Winter of Dani Lancing needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I can't say.


    Any additional comments?

    This was gut wrenchingly awful.
