Bradstreet Gate

by Robin Kirman

Georgia, Charlie and Alice each arrive at Harvard with hopeful visions of what the future will hold. But when, just before graduation, a classmate is found murdered on campus, they find themselves facing a cruel and unanticipated new reality. Moreover, a charismatic professor who has loomed large in their lives is suspected of the crime. Though his guilt or innocence remains uncertain, the unsettling questions raised by the case force the three friends to take a deeper look at their tangled relationship. Their bond has been defined by the secrets they’ve kept from one another—Charlie’s love and Alice’s envy, Georgia’s mysterious affair—and over the course of the next decade, as they grapple with the challenges of adulthood and witness the unraveling of a teacher’s once-charmed life, they must reckon with their own.

I grabbed a copy of Bradstreet Gate for review because I wanted a good mystery. I love mystery’s and thrillers almost as much as I love tea, and that’s saying alot! This book was good, I enjoyed it but not as mystery suspense as I was hoping for. It reminded me of a mini series or like the new thing a 10 episode drama. The characters were quirky and a bit dysfunctional but they kept you reading. The Bradstreet Gate is good, the classmates murder is really just the backdrop and not the main theme of the book. It’s really about this group of very driven friends that will do anything to keep their secrets, secret and their life on the same track they have always envisioned. If your into character driven fiction with a side of mystery than grab Bradstreet Gate.
