Chasing Horses
Chasing Horses
by Christy Tillery French
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.67

5.0 out of 5 stars This Should Be a Movie!, 4 Feb 2003
This review is from: Chasing Horses (Paperback)
"Chasing Horses" would make a fantastic movie. French's protagonist is zany and surrounds herself with people wackier than she is. The situations she and her friends get themselves into are hilarious. But the book isn't entirely funny. There are places which evoke other emotions: sadness, sympathy, commiseration. The book is sensually contemporary. As a woman, a lot of the issues discussed in this book hit home. French could be the South's Evanovich or Grafton, although her style also reminds me of Elmore Leonard and Ed McBain - quick wit, humorous jabs. A great book I intend to keep on hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good or Better Than The Bestsellers, 4 Feb 2003
This review is from: Wayne's Dead (Paperback)
As a reviewer for a large Southern newspaper, I am only allowed to review hardbacks. I wish I could make an exception in this case. "Wayne's Dead" by French is a quick-paced, fascinating story into the investigation of a serial killer. French portrays knowledge of the mental disorder multiple personality disorder, as well as forensics. Her characters feel like real-life people. Her dialogue is contemporary and believable. I hope she brings investigative detective Jackson Daniels and his partner Marvin back in a future novel. A great read that I'm still thinking about.
