I like Frank Turner Hollon's books, but he's outdone himself here. I lost myself early in this book. Caught up in Joel's insightful examination of himself and who he is, his expectation that the insanity in his family will catch up with him, I became totally immersed in this. I did not completely anticipate the ending, which affects every insight revealed in the book, so this is something I will read again for the joy of seeing it unfold anew.
An intriguing story of the nature of truth, memory and the workings of the mind set against the background of a murder. It is not what I would call a mystery, but a good read nonetheless.
Written by an attorney, this novel is a disturbing look at a dysfunctional family. Written in the form of interviews between a psychologist and a man accused of killing his brother, this is a skillfully written psychological thriller. I was floored by the ending and am certainly looking forward to reading more this author's work. I loved it and very highly recommend.
