Attention all you die-hard mystery fans out there...there is a new British author on the scene.
Okay, relatively new, because The Back Road is actually her second novel. But that's okay, because I
haven't yet read the first and to me Rachel Abbott is a new, imaginative, and refreshing author. I'm adding her to the list
of my top five favorite suspense/thriller writers that includes Charlotte and Aaron Elkins, Valerie Martin – okay, she
is more of an historical novelist, but her last one was, indeed, mysterious – and our own hometown favorite, Lisa Scottoline.
However, unlike the lighter Elkins
or Scottoline storylines that are airily touched with intellectual humor, The Back Road is in some respects darker and more sinister. And its storyline
is a twisted, convoluted maze of plots and sub-plots replete with more characters than you can count on your page-turning
fingers. And, yes, folks, this is a page-turner.
Whisk you way to www.authorexposure.com to read my review. And then settle by the fire in your front
room this weekend to read The Back Road.
