Trust Your Eyes
Laura's pick this month, 'Trust Your Eyes'. The first book I've thoroughly enjoyed in months. Not a labour to read, not 'L'iterature,' no 'Message' clobbering me over the head. Just a good old-fashioned page-turner of a mystery with some great twists. Humour, well-drawn characters, even a bit of a love story. Bonus - homegrown, from a former Toronto Star columnist.
Stephen King's endorsement on the cover page must have been worth a few thousand well-deserved sales, "Riveting... great entertainment from a suspense master." Unanimously enjoyed by everyone that turned out for the evening's discussion.
I picked this up just a few days before the meeting, surprised there were so many Linwood Barclay titles on the shelf. Looking forward to dipping into more.
