A first novel, a good one, and the title gives nothing away. I like that. It’s not a shivery, goose-bumpy title at all, is it, but this is one spectacularly shivery thriller. Now, you know, I’ve read my share of mysteries and thrillers, and let me tell you that you won’t find fictional murders more horrifying than these. Not extravagant, opulent murders a la The Da Vinci Code, but murders in a perfectly ordinary kitchen – at breakfast. One survivor, and this is her story to tell, a story so clever, original and complicated, it’ll have you jumping to conclusions and haring off in all directions. If puzzling over the evil that men can do appeals, give this one a try. Thanks, Ms. Vandelly.
Definitely worth pre-ordering wherever you buy books online, as this one doesn’t come out until July 23. A link to Amazon.com is available here: Theme Music: A Novel
