    By now we should all be on guard against Dan Chaon, but there’s just no effective defense against this cunning writer. The author of three novels and three collections of short stories, he draws on our sympathies even while pricking our anxieties. Before beginning his exceptionally unnerving ne...

    This book was so different than what I was expecting. Given the premise I probably should've known better. Rusty has just been exonerated (through DNA) from prison after having served 30 years for allegedly murdering his adopted parents. He had already been tried and convicted in the court of public...

    Unique, dark, suspenseful psychological thriller that cycles back and forth in time focusing on 2 separate sets of murders. In the 1970s, Dustin’s parents and aunt and uncle were brutally murdered while he and his cousins slept in a trailer in the driveway. It was his and his cousin, Kate’...

    Ill Will's protagonist, Dustin Tillman, is - in my eyes - the cliché of a middle-aged psychologist. A married man and father of two sons, who has bigger issues than many of his clients, who lives in denial and doesn't see the wood for the trees. Probably not surprising, when you consider that Dus...

    For all my reviews, visit my blog at http://ladyjreadingnook.blogspot.com My Review Ill Will by Dan Chaon is about a string of murders of young college-aged men and another murder that occurred in 1983. The 1983 murder is when the main character, Dustin Tillman’s parents and aunt/uncle die. Dus...

    2.5 stars I have one word for this book: FRUSTRATING!!!!I finished this 2 days ago, and the frustration is still strong, probably due to the fact that I still have so many unanswered questions. The problem wasn't with the storyline, as that held my interest. 2 different murder plots-one taking place...

    I devoured "Ill Will." It has to be among the smartest, saddest, most haunting page-turners I've ever read. ...

    4 Stars. My only complaint is that it was too long but otherwise, a very complex and chilling story....
