The Bridgeman is a mystery novel written by Catherine Astolfo. The book is about a principal named Emily Taylor who sees a dead body in her school. Then, with the help of other characters in the neighborhood, she attempts to find the murderer. The story is quite interesting, and since it’s a mystery, each chapter makes you want to know what happens next. The plot doesn’t take too long to unfold since the mystery begins in the first chapter itself. As the book is written in first person, you get to go through all the emotions of the main character, and as a reader, you are more involved in the plot. I think that makes mystery novels more interesting, since reading in third person gives an overall view of the situation, and in some cases it can reduce the suspense in a book. I would give The Bridgeman 4 stars.
