    I really uite enjoyed this story but would have preferred it had been better edited first There were some oft repeated mistakes throughout that drove me nutsThe tale is set in Canada where a serial killer is on the loose It rightly uoted Ted Bundy at the beginning remarking on the way law enforcement made his chosen career path an easy one to take seeing as they didn't communicate with each other So as a transient murderer he got away with it for many years than he rightly should haveThis was the case with the murderer Phil of the story He crossed boundaries and the differing police agencies used differing systems even in this 21st century As we learned here in the UK to our cost after a massive scale set of killings with the Yorkshire Ripper you could be totally bogged down with information and tips to follow up however well meaning if those in pursuit don't have a clear method of cross checking suspects It was around 5 times I think they interviewed Sutcliffe without realising it There were lots of little words lost in sentences in this such as bethe or aIn one line 'they weren't' was repeated twice for no reason as was 'go to' in anotherThere were apostrophe mistakes and words running into each other like afterall or so A proper proofread would have easily picked these up Annoyingly superintendent was misspelt as superindendant every single time it was used Muesli had a random x added thus became mueslixALL these mistakes easily meant I knocked one star down

    Chalk Valley the debut novel from author DL Johnstone is an amazingly well crafted piece of crime fiction On its face the serial killer trope has been done to death Where Johnstone absolutely shines and sets Chalk Valley apart however is in his characterizations The story may be built around the skeleton of a serial killer but it is fleshed out by the struggles and frustrations of the two men leading their respective investigations for the killer Who “the guy” is Phil Lindsay is known from the outset; this isn’t a mystery Rather the portrait Chalk Valley paints is that of an intricate painful examination of how the lives in the path of such an investigation are twisted and ripped apartChalk Valley British Columbia Detective John McCarty simply does not have the experience or the resources to handle an investigation of the magnitude he finds himself in charge of yet at the same time his pride won’t allow him to ask for the outside assistance he needs It doesn’t help that his boss is also adamant that the Mounties not swoop in and take things over thereby making the Chalk Valley police department look small time and incompetent The pressure causes McCarty who already had a drinking problem to slip into a downward spiral that affects both his job and his marriage The uestion isn’t if he’s going to implode but whenBaywater British Columbia Sergeant Dave Kreaver recently divorced and still coping with the death of his young son doesn’t have the ego issues that are tripping up McCarty uite the opposite actually Kreaver is trying desperately to get anyone and everyone he can on the same page to help bring the case to a conclusion He knows who the killer is he just can’t find a way to nail the guy At every turn he runs into some sort of stumbling block Be it the innocent failure of officers to follow up on tips the deliberate refusal of people like McCarty to cooperate or simply the miles and miles of red tape inherent in the system Kreaver just can’t seem to catch the break he needs to turn the tide He gets tired of waiting however and decides to take measures into his own handsNot even Lindsay’s family is immune to the pressure In fact they may actually be the ones most traumatized by events Though his wife has always known her husband has his secrets – what exactly is in that locked room in the basement she’s never supposed to enter? – she can’t bring herself to believe he could be capable of anything truly evil not even when evidence to the contrary starts to mount Even Lindsay himself starts to unravel as the story progresses a process made all the deadly by the inefficiency that is the morass of interjurisdictional law enforcement a sieve that continuously allows Lindsay to wiggle freeAnd throughout it all Johnstone incorporates first rate scenes of boots on the ground police investigation forensic examinations and behavioral profiling uite simply Chalk Valley presents a balance of action police techniue and character development that is incredibly rare to find period and damn near unheard of in a debut The year’s not over uite yet but I highly expect Chalk Valley to be among the books making a strong play for a spot on my Top 10 Reads of 2012 list when January 1st rolls around

    Chalk Valley grips the reader from the opening page The book is filled with action and suspense moves uickly and concludes with a satisfying ending The author has clearly done his work in researching his field it shows in his writing His characters are all flawed believable and well developed The story is told from several points of view which gives the reader a better insight into the horror the struggles and the desperation The author also exposes the frustration of the officials even when they are certain they have their guy they are hampered by legal red tape which gives the killer the freedom to continue his rampage Excellent thriller I would read by this authorDisclaimer I read a review copy and found a number of errors which may be due to having received a pre edited version For this reason I gave 4 stars otherwise I would give 5 stars for the story and the content

    D L Johnstone's Chalk Valley is a fictional thriller about three young brutalized murder victims who are found deep in a forest of a remote town in Western Canada Detectives and police are in a struggle against time to find the merciless fugitive before he strikes again Will they be successful in finding the murderer or will the labyrinth of police jurisdictions obstruct justice before the culprit takes another life? Chalk Valley is a dramatic and enjoyable adventure told mostly through the angle of multiple law enforcement workers I enjoyed this book so much that I read it twice back to back Other than one detail of the ligature on a murder victim that seemed to be mentioned in passing before it was officially revealed by the appropriate source Chalk Valley intricately weaves together characters and evidence to create an incredibly realistic story Johnstone shows fantastic character development with a layered plot of personal situations and police investigations with enough detail that it makes you feel like you are alongside for the investigation The book escalates in suspense with twists and turns until the satisfying end Although there is mature language sexual scenes and violent situations the abusive elements are respectfully described and not exceedingly detailed or graphic Chalk Valley takes you on a roller coaster of emotions and suspense during a fight to bring a killer to justice I found this tale similar to the general story of Gary Leon Ridgway the Green River Killer portrayed mostly from a law enforcement point of view I would definitely recommend Johnstone’s Chalk Valley to anyone who has an interest in true crime serial killers and criminal justice

    Too much too longI didn't follow half of the initials the author put in the story as to what law enforcement group was being talked about This book was surely written for Canadians to understand not Americans
