I'm not sure now where I heard about this book--I thought it was from this site, but not that I can now discover. It certainly is a page-turner with a heartfelt and profound message growing out of the story and summarized memorably at the end. It begs to be read at one sitting, so don't pick it up unless you've got a couple or three hours. The entire plot is set in the woods and sloughs of northern Florida, where the protagonist has gone to check on an automatic camera he has set up to photograp...more
Remington James is a successful but unhappy advertising executive when his father dies. He returns to his hometown to run his father's store and care for his mother who is dying of MS. While he is home, he decides to pick up the hobby, the passion, he gave up years ago, wildlife photography. He has set trap cameras in the woods of the Apalachicola River Basin in hopes of maybe catching the elusive Florida panther. As he is out taking pictures and checking his traps one evening, he discovers that...more
2 1/2 stars. The plot was good but I didn't care for the style of writing. I got distracted so often that I never felt the build up of suspense. Decent story but not my taste.
I don't really care for the author's style of writing but it was an exciting story with a message.

I liked the story premise, but hated the writing style.

Als Cole James stirbt, erbt sein Sohn Remington das Stück Land, was seit Generationen in der Hand der James ist – ein Stück Florida. Früher streifte er an jedem Samstagmorgen mit seinem Dad durch die Wälder – Cole wollte Wild schießen, Remington Bilder. Momente festhalten und eben diese besonderen Augenblicke nicht mehr gehen lassen. Als Remington in den Wald seiner Jugend zurückkehrt, baut er Kameras an verschiedenen Stellen auf, die automatisch Bilder aufnehmen, wenn das Infrarot reagie...more

Double Exposure started out slow for me. It seemed very poetic and I was not sure I would like it. However, once Remington, the main character, finds he has pictures of a murder, it becomes very exciting. The rest of the novella (112 pages) is comprised of the murderer and his colleagues trying to track Remington through a swamp/forest area in southern Florida. While he is trying to escape his pursuers, Remington reflects on his life, his new-found career as a photographer, his estranged wife, h...more

A Powerful Story of Survival
Nature's wonder wrapped around a cold evil.

This story unfolds like the wings of a newborn butterfly and closes in the raging love of a mother bear seeking to save her cub. After setting camera traps in the midst of the Apalachicola River Basin, Remington returns to collect the memory cards from them and discovers he has captured evidence of a terrible crime.

Michael Lister uses language expertly, only pausing from the relentless pur...more
This book is very sparsely written, yet I didn't feel as though I was missing anything. Lister uses language very carefully. The story moves quickly, and it is difficult to put the book down. Remington, the main character, is taking wildlife photos at night in the swamps/woods of northwest Florida. When he retrieves the memory card from his camera trap, he has photos of a murder taking place. The majority of the book involves the killer and associates hunting Remington through the swamp/woods th...more
This book hit my "fight or flight" button on several different occasions, and I didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to keep reading! There are many twists and turns that made the book delightfully unpredictable. Lister allows his readers to catch their breath between action scenes and uses this time to drive home the life lessons – the larger take-aways. Right when you've caught your breath, you're plunged back into the action and the tension winds back up again. His staccato stylistic approach...more

This is one of the most "sit on the edge of your seat and stay up all night" to read book. I absolutely could not put this book down. The plot made me think a little of DELIVERANCE in that main character was stranded in the woods with the bad guys coming after him. Chose for my KINDLE as it was set in Northwest Florida in the backwoods. The author is a professor at Gulf Coast Community College and he really knows the area. If you are an environmentalist (tree hugger) and love "Old Florida," you...more
I had the opportunity to meet the author at our Friends of the Library meeting, as his aunt if from my hometown. The imagery of this book is what makes it very different; it is written a lot like prose. You "feel" the story as it is experienced by the protagonist. The setting is in the backwoods of the panhandle...the "real Florida" that is nearly the same as it has always been before settlement...pristine and alive. Lots of mystery and complicated relationships...enjoy the shadowy side of South...more
Probably the fastest book I ever read written in a style that is clipped but works perfectly for this story. It is a fast-paced story about a wildlife photographer who sets out cameras to catch life in the woods on film. What he did not expect and what will be his undoing is one of his camera traps catches a murder in action. From there it is an edge-f-your seat thriller. Not sure I liked the ending but getting to that point was a heck of a rush.
Carolyn Rose
The plot - a hunted man trying to survive the night - is a nail-biter but, even though that's probably how my mind would work in the same situation, some the mental ramblings dampened the suspense and pulled me out of the story. Still, the setting details are terrific and I raced through to the end, staying up far too late to finish.
We all know how much I love the Gulf Coast. Now that I'm married to a boy from the back woods, the Florida where no one vacations has grown on me too. This isn't a meander through those forests and wetlands. I enjoyed the ride thoroughly.

The fact that this signed copy was printed locally made it even better.

DNF this one. It was ok at the beginning but then it got dull. The one worded sentences got-to-be-very annoying. My kindle was reading it to me in Zombie mode. I would have liked it more if the guys that were chasing Remington would have been more developed character-wise.

This edgy, fast passed, thriller by Michael Lister is a white knuckle page turner. You won't be able to put down. Michael brings the North Florida River Swamp to life like only someone with a love for "God's Country" can.

First time reading a book by this author. I found the references to historical photography very interesting. I found the overall theme of the story to be very touching and would recommend it to my friends.
Spannender Psychothriller. Die Sprache war erst gewöhnungsbedürftig, passt dann aber sehr gut zu Inhalt und Tempo. Ingesamt war das Buch anspruchsvoller und vielschichtiger, als ich erwartet hatte.
Short story a little over a hundred pages. I struggled at first with the heavy prose and light weight story line but I got through it and later admitted to myself that wasn't all that bad.
Ro Wilson
Don't pick up this book unless you can spend the next few hours reading it; putting it down for later is not an option.

It is a marvelous work by an amazing author.
A very gripping and exciting book that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole thing. Written very beautifully too. I definitely enjoyed this one!

This was my favorite book of 2009. The story is terrific & the language is like poetry. A beautiful suspense novel. I highly recomend it !
Too much introspective meandering down memory lane and not enough action, in my view.
gut, spannend, rau, minimalistisch, bildstark, eindringlich, mitreissend - anders!
Good read, slow to start but then a page turner. A lot of action and a little violence.
Bill S.
Crackerjack little story, A real page turner.
Too much flowery descriptions, poetry
