Innovative and Authentic Thriller!
on February 6, 2018
Most mystery-thrillers obey certain archetypes, bringing the reader along towards a satisfying-if-expected ending. Not this one.
"The Nowhere Girls" shows off its bonafides as a mystery-thriller from the first page: riveting characters, a tension-fueled plot, and a sense of place that breathes with the fresh air of authenticity. There is little wasted space, either, as each interaction drives the novel forward--mandating that the reader hold on for the ride.
The best part? The author's refusal to abide by the normal pattern of a mystery thriller. Without availing spoilers, I'll just say that the decisions made by this author show an impressive amount of courage. And ample pay off for the reader.
Five stars, without a second thought.
