Everyone knew Linda as a charming girl.. it was an image her husband worked hard to maintain.. beneath the surface Linda was a neurotic alcoholic.. then she vanished without trace and the net closes in as everyone points the finger at John.

Reading works this help me to define "trash." My current working definition is: stories that, despite a compelling plot, are not sincerely concerned with their characters as possibly real people. They learn nothing significant, nor are they intended to mirror ourselves in any profound way, but merely fill a slot in the plot.

Mr. Quentin does make reading about such characters compelling, however. After a certain point it is as ly one will stop reading, as decline a second potato chip or chocolate-chip cookie.3 s Dorian Grey 295 6

En malttanut olla lukematta toista Quentiniä perään. Edelleen: herkullista kieltä, klassinen, toimiva rakenne. Tässä tosin hieman erilainen premissi, mies joutuu epäillyksi, kun vaimo katoaa, ja yrittää selvittää mitä tapahtui.2018 owned1 Judy71 2

Mostly a bog standard, only barely interesting whodunnit where the protagonist is set up for the murder of his ghastly wife. But with unpleasant, queasy undertones - the small town lynch mob is way over the top; and the protagonist's relationship with a group of neighbourhood children, who ultimately help him prove his innocence, comes across as a nauseous mixture of the Famous Five and Lolita. 1 Sue Pratt182 2

A really terrific, solid yarn. I love this style of writing and his scathing, acerbic insights into the monnied, soulless world to which Linda aspired.
