Staff Reviews

The setting of this intense literary psychological thriller is a wild upstate New York forest filled with natural beauty and a building sense of menace. The story is told from the perspectives of three kids involved in a horrific and senseless crime. I felt I knew these families and their rural community with prejudices and class issues at play. The three are each damaged in their own way as adults as their lives converge in New York City and back upstate with shocking results. (going home again may NOT be a good idea).

“I love finding a new author who writes something so great that I'm compelled to find more of their work. Christopher Yates is my new guy. At the start of Grist Mill Road, the reader witnesses an event that changes the lives of three people, Hannah, Matthew, and Patrick, who each have their moment to narrate their side of the story. Saying there is great character depth here doesn't do Yates justice; they become living, breathing human beings. This gripping story keeps your heart racing at just the right pace and the story concludes right where it should. Be prepared to put yourself in another person's shoes - well, make that three pairs of shoes.”
