Morgan Mandel's writing is clear, her characters are easily visualized and easy to follow, and her storytelling is spellbinding. Interweaving the thoughts of a writer who writes well enough to teach others the art with the mind of a megalomaniac so deeply disturbed that he doesn't recognize the reality of his fiction, Morgan takes us all on a journey into madness that is unforgettable. The contrast between childhood losses being sympathetically treated vs those ignored and mishandled is handled with empathy and caution. The love story as a subplot is a quiet echo of those childhood losses and the right and wrong way to deal with such, allowing her characters to grow and move beyond childhood feelings toward mature relationships.
This is the second Morgan Mandel mystery that I've read, and I look forward to more. If you enjoy reading a master of the art of storytelling and following plots that reflect human needs and fulfillment, you will love her stories.
