Read from March 20 to 21, 2012

An engaging, briskly-paced read, LIKE DEATH takes the tropes of the suburban-idyll thriller and injects them with a wealth of bizarre imagery (arachnophobes take note!) and memorable characters. The reality-bending twists Waggoner throws into the mix, while grounded by a believable, sharply-drawn cast of players and the mundane details of everyday reality, helps offset the queasiness that sometimes comes with novels about child abduction/murder. The result is an imaginative dark fantasy that should easily appeal to fans of suspense, speculative or otherwise.
