This was my first by Kate Wilhelm, but definitely won't be my last. Wilhelm's style of writing is subtle and works its way under your skin. It's not a hardcore mystery or psychological thriller, but the author is able to draw you in so slowly and subtly that you don't even realize you're hooked. When Abby's father, Jud, a bestselling novelist is murdered in his lakeside cabin, Abby sets out to find out who the murderer is. Others around Abby believe they know who it is, but the dawning realization takes Abby a little longer to accept. Even better is Abby's father's ability to take actual events and people and change them just enough to use in his books. And, of course, the identity of Jud's murderer is hidden in his final novel. This is a wonderfully woven story with believable characters and events.
Well written, interesting psychological fiction.
I loved this book. What a great get-away mystery. Not great literature but very fun to read.
Enjoyable story about a daughter who Father is murdered at a remote cabin. There are no clues and no suspects. As she seeks the secrets of his life, through his published and non published books, her life become in danger. Kate Wilhelm is one of my fav authors.
Interesting book. I did like it but unlike others I had a hard time getting through the middle. The premise of the story was great and the unraveling of her fathers life and death was suspenseful & interesting. The only problem I had was that I could have easily skipped the middle of the book and not missed it at all.
