I’m one of the few who enjoyed Mathematics as a subject in school. That’s why this book immediately appealed to me, and I had to procure a copy.
Short stories are always fun to read, and a welcome break from novels. This book has three short stories, and is a short read.
Life is all about choices, they say. This novel is about them too. I found this novel at a literature festival, and had I not attended that day, I may have missed it. The title, simple as it is, was quite appealing. And the cover art wasn’t that bad either.
They say a well told story doesn’t have to be very long. So many writers love writing short stories. This book takes the stories a notch further. These are flash fiction. Would they still be “thrilling”? I’ve read the author’s work before, and knew the genre would definitely play to her strengths.
I love reading crime thriller novels. The genre is such that, if written well, the novel manages to grip me. I think both the cover art and the title itself both appealed to the crime thriller lover. The blurb promised action – a serial killer on the loose, and a policeman trying to catch that killer. Could the book wow me?
