Mystery March – Steven Herrick – Cold Skin

Cold Skin is my first verse novel.  I have never been into poetry and as a consequence baulked at verse novels but owing to an author visit decided to promote this book and verse novels to my students.  I found the support notes on the Allen and Unwin site really useful in scaffolding my reading and ultimately enjoyed Cold Skin and the style of writing.  The students I spoke to about it talked of the advantages of verse novels and the way they can digest it in little bits.  As a mystery I did predict the killer but was sufficiently engaged by all the stories of each character to be diverted.
