For Dix Mallory, the reign of terror begins with a series of anonymous phone calls, shortly, after his wife is killed in a freak accident. Or did it start before that? Was her death in fact cold-blooded murder? And could the killer be one of their friends?
This book is a great read. I really liked it. I didn't want to put it down.
Good Book ! First time reading Bill Pronzini's books.
The plot revolves around a central character named Dixon "Dix" Mallory who is trying to get his life back together after losing his wife in a terrible car accident. Just as he begins to come to grips with his grief, he begins receiving anonymous phone calls from a man purporting to be his wife Katy's former lover.
Dix soon finds out that one of his wife's closest friends, Francesca "Cecca" Bellini, is also receiving prank calls involving the noctural activities of her daughter, Amy. Cecca and Dix soon begin to collaborate on a plan to find if the calls are connected in any way and what they can do to stop them.
Pronzini weaves a pretty good plot from this point as both of the protagonists begin to confront some of their friends regarding the mysterious calls and their subject matter. The author creates some good characters and throws in quite a few plot twists as the reader tries to unravel who "The Tormentor" is.
