This real-life unsolved murder is the basis of Emma Donoghue's new novel, "Frog Music".What "Frog Music" lacks, however, is the gripping storytelling that made Donoghue's previous novel "Room" -- about a mother and son held captive -- such a beautifully poignant read. The premise of "Frog Music" is wild enough, and yet Donoghue pushes it over the top with explicit sex scenes, then bogs it down with daily minutiae that does little to enhance the story or its characters -- or make us care for them much.
