STAY AWAY from STAY CLOSE,

This review is from: Stay Close (Hardcover)
Sorry Harlan but this is unbelievably formulaic!
How such an average novel could come from the pen of somebody who brought us "Tell No One" beggars belief and frankly, I think your public deserves better.
The plot is pedestrian and has zero grip. It is populated by characters that are quite unbelievable and about whom I for one, couldn't care less and all in all, It left me feeling sad that you have descended to pushing out this bilge.
Doubtless you will make good money from it but whatever happend to pride in your work?
At your best, you are literature's Hitchcock - at your worst, you make Mickey Spillane look like Dickens!
