really liked it
bookshelves: general-fiction, mystery

This is the first book of McIntyre's that I've read and it won't be the last. Her primary character, a ghost writer, is efficiently and remarkably well-thought out. I say "remarkably" because it is rare in today's literary world for a writer to go back to elementary fiction principles and plan out the depiction of a main character so they say and do believable things. As I read this book, the ghost writer comes alive as a person carried along by the plot: as it should be in fiction. This is not a great work of literature, but it actually has some meanings and layers that put it a step above "summer beach reading".
