John Hart
A magnificent debut novel that is brilliant and quickly becomes a complex, fast paced and intelligent mystery thriller.
Jackson Workman Pickens, “Work” is totally overshadowed by his larger than life father. When his mother dies, and his father disappears all his inner demons brought on by a loveless marriage, poor emotional choices, and his worry about his sister’s psychological traumas are swept aside when his father’s murder is discovered.
As Work stands to inherit fifteen million his ambivalent attitude leads the authorities to make him their prime suspect. His ambivalent attitude is all about the suspicion and fears he has for his sister. Mr. Hart is truly masterful when he delves into the emotional dynamics of family relationships.
What a wonderful debut, with a fascinating main character that grows on each page.
This is an author I will be following for sure!
