A reminder that men can be dangerous animals, everyone's got an agenda, and dude, always close your curtains over.

I've never read a voyeur novel before and so this was all a new experience to me. The Expanse Between is a dark tale that questions the habit of writers to write fictionalized stories about real people (with just changing their name.) The characters are convincing in their roles and Krecklow captures a descent into madness in each of them that makes the book worthwhile. It is a promising debut novel that deserves measurable success and makes me excited about what else Krecklow has in store in th ...more

Written by a friend of my sister, and passed along to me to see what I thought. I figured that it would be the usual, amateurish thing. Wow - I was way wrong. Read this when it gets published - it's got an excellent, sort of unsettling, sort of film noir tone that leaves you guessing as to not only what will happen next, but even as to what sort of book it is.

As I explained to the author, the reason I didn't give it five stars is that it left me sufficiently unsure of what to think of it that I

My first reaction when I read a novel or short story, especially by an emerging or unknown author, with a writer as main character, is to cringe. It tends to be a sign of immaturity and lack of imagination. I quickly move on. That said, some of the best and most well known authors artfully weave in a writer character, and writing as a pursuit, into their stories.

Krecklow's main character in his novel, The Expanse Between, Thomas Stone, is an example that is, astonishingly, towards the expert end

A 3.7 rounded up. I like the concept behind this book and thought the prose was beautiful. All the characters felt real and fleshed out except for Mark. His involvement in the final act left me feeling unsatisfied with the ending, like it didn’t tie in with the theme of the book and was just the to provide an ending.

Krecklow's debut novel takes us into the maze of a twisted mind bent on manipulating his targets. This is a dark thriller which cleverly weaves together the lives of its characters. This book slowly draws you in as the characters' relationships become more and more complicated and connected. A really good read, especially for those who love a thriller.
