You never quite know what you're going to get with a Lester story, which makes for great thrilling and suspenseful reads. His voice throughout is very distinct, and he does well to create an ominous atmosphere, while also providing levity and irreverence.
Monster Hunter Mitchell is my surprise favorite read. I thought I'd enjoy it, but not as much as I did. The levity, supernatural horror, and world building all shine under Sorrell's fantastic prose!
I am normally not one for Historical Fiction, but HOT DAMN Leslie nails this one with visceral scenes and dramatic story telling well worth readers' time.
At face value the story concerns Louise and her ensnarement in the convoluted web of Adele and David Martin's crumbling marriage. Adele becomes Louise's best friend while David becomes Louise's lover.
Early on I got some vibes akin to Dean Koontz’s From The Corner of His Eye, which I nearly DNF’ed. Thankfully, Christopher turns out something much more digestible and suspenseful.
