What a great read!

Although it took me a few chapters to get into the story (it's told in alternating real-time and past-tense chapters), this was one thriller that grabs on and never lets go.

I've read other Gregg Hurwitz titles, but THE CRIME WRITER is the first one that had me reading late into the night just to see what happened next. This is one read that definitely keeps you on your toes, and questions everything you think you know about what has happened or what's going to happen.

Definitely recommended -- this one's a winner!

I thought this was a pretty good read. It kept me interested, and it was certainly suspenseful. It made you question if the protagonist was all he appeared to be, and just how much humans are capable of. Some parts of the plot felt a little bit clunky, and some of the characters didn't always seem necessary, if not to simply add another "possible" suspect, in my opinion. It was interesting enough to make me want to read through to the end to discover exactly what happened, so for that, definitely entertaining. Was it the best mystery I've ever read? No, but it was still enjoyable and didn't take terribly long to get through.

There were enough plot twists to keep me interested. I would recommend this book to a friend. It was a quick read but not what I would call light-weight. I liked the author's writing style so much that I decided to read other books by him - although I prefer his stand-alone novels versus the Tim Brantley series.
