A thriller with a difference,
This review is from: I See You (Paperback)
LA based author Drew Danner is accused of murdering his ex-fiancé, but he has no memory of the actual event.
The book is about Danner's attempt to find out what actually happened. It is written in a first person narrative. Along the way Danner is writing his own book about what happens to him. Small sections of that book appear within "I See You" along with comments from his editor, Preston. Almost like a book within a book.
There are a number of interesting characters in "I See You", particularly the editor Preston, and a pair of truly unlikable LAPD detectives.
The shallowness of LA is brought home to the reader. Chapter 35 contains a fantastic rant about LA "wanabees". It's almost worth reading the book for that alone.
Because there does end up being more than one murder in the book, it would be quite tempting for the author to plump for a highly unoriginal serial killer based plot. Thankfully that doesn't happen. Preston mentions in the book that serial killer stories aren't that captivating. I couldn't agree more....
