Good Kindle The Strangler 3.5 Stars.. The book opens on 11/22/63, and if you know what happened on that awful day, you'll most likely agree, it's a great draw for a beginning.THE STRANGLER is a story about the Daley family, particularly the lives of three grown sons, one a Detective for Boston PD, another a Harvard-educated Prosecutor, and the youngest a Master Thief. Also a focal point of the story is the suspicious death of their Police Officer father in the line of duty and the 'boyfriend' of their feisty attractive mother.....And don't forget, there is a serial killer on the loose.Although corruption, gangsters, betrayals and family interaction play a major part in the narration, William Landay does a great job of interweaving the actions of THE STRANGLER, but, unfortunately not near enough to meet my expectations, hence the 3.5 Star rating.Overall, a decent mystery read, but too much family detail and not enough STRANGLER!DEFENDING JACOB, now that's a 5 Star Landay read.....at least for me.
