“Hell on East Rock: A Love Mystery", written by Patrick Mascola, will capture your attention from the first page itself and will keep you turning the pages until you reach the very end to solve the missing pieces of the puzzle. Jennifer has a close relationship with her brother Tommy and her world is forever changed when Tommy falls off of East Rock one night while they are high. As Jennifer moves on in life, she struggles with trying to come to terms with what her life used to be and what it means as well as how Tommy died and if she is the one to blame for his death. At the same time Jennifer’s parents deal with secrets in their lives and how life has turned out for them.
This is a well-written book; however, the reader should be warned that it is filled with vulgar language, sexual situations and drug use. Jennifer and Tommy are children of a wealthy couple and their lifestyle is depicted as being filled with secrets and having access to drugs and a life full of fun. The writing is very descriptive and I loved the imagery that is used to describe the scenes. The depiction of how Jennifer stays at Woodland Manors and works through her memories and sorts through her thoughts in order to figure out that fateful night is excellent and it joins all the intriguing pieces of the story to fit into the mystery.
