Writer Jack Waters has just tasted his first success, and is sorting out his troubled marriage, when he's sucker punched--seemingly out of the blue. What follows is a highly credible quest for answers by a man who slowly realizes that he must reexamine everything he trusts and believes in, complicated by his being unwittingly snared into a brutal criminal underworld.
I found this a solidly entertaining story. (It wouldn't make a bad movie. IKR! I should wash my mouth out with soap now!) The characters are fresh, complicated and yet authentic. The detail is rich enough to allow you to paint the scene in your imagination. Bucchianeri has a way with suspense--hooking you, drawing you in a little, letting you play out a bit, then drawing you in some more--keeping the line just so taut. Chapter by chapter, you weigh each potential outcome as new details surface.
In the end, he wraps it up credibly. All in all, a satisfying read! Bucchianeri is on my must-read list now.
Jack Waters is an alcoholic Author trying to stay sober. One day he wakes up in a motel and finds himself being blackmailed. His wife and son leave him and he is in despair. Determined to find out who is blackmailing him and why, he encounters many unsavory characters, but no matter what he faces he is determined to get to the truth.
A mystery/suspense with interesting characters, twists, turns and secrets. Many times I thought I knew where (it) was going, only to be shocked by a new turn or secret. A great read. Suspense/mystery lovers should enjoy Between a Smile and a Tear.
