Among the Missing; Morag Joss

Among the Missing: A NovelAmong the Missing: A Novel by Morag Joss
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I probably would have rated this higher had I not felt cheated: the blurbage and Mystery Guild led me to believe this would be a dark mystery (which was what I was in the mood for) and instead I got a psych study of three people.

None of the characters was particularly interesting on their own, but they could have been had Joss delved a little deeper. The bridge collapse made me think Bridge of San Luis Rey and the Staplehurst wreck that starts off Drood, mostly because it ties the characters together as well as sets off the chain of events that leads to Silva's going just a little insane.
