The Tunnels

THE TUNNELS by Michelle Gagnon (Mira, c2007, ISBN 978-0-7783-2446-1) was a new book and a new author to me.
Set in Middletown, CT, FBI's Special Agent Kelly Jones has been summoned to work a spooky case. Women have been found slaughtered underneath a prestigious New England college (one that happens to be Kelly's alma mater) and they seem to be connected: their fathers are all wealthy, powerful men. With her partner Roger Morrow and former FBI agent Jake Riley, Kelly will get to the bottom of it -- even if it costs her her life.

The book begins:
"Seriously? You've never been down there? And you're what, a junior?"

With a hint of old gothic romance, THE TUNNELS was a stellar debut and I look forward to more by this author.

Well this is good to hear! I have this book on my TBR list. I hope to get to it in 2008.

I hope so too. It would be a great read during the autumn to winter switch. Cold, grey, dreary weather and a book with scary underground deaths. Yeah...
