This review is from: Red Leaves (Paperback)Eric Moore's teenage son was babysitting his neighbour's 8 yr old girl when she went missing that night. The finger of suspicion points at his son and Eric can't decide who he can trust...
Thomas H. Cooks's novels are literary masterpieces using the psychological thriller genre. This is more than crime writing - it's literature that just happens to be using crime fiction as a vehicle. You immediately find yourself lost in the most glorious, compassionate, heart-renching, beautiful prose. This is writing with heart and soul. The compelling plot weaves questions of morality, philosophy and the human condition. This is one of those few books that actually reads you. Cook cleverly plants seeds of doubt whilst at the same time tells you that doubt is corrosive and will picture everything you see, hear or read. Ingenious.
All this and an ending you'll never predict. Red Leaves is a perfect novel.
