I became acquainted with W K Krueger’s writing with ORDINARY GRACE. This book (a stand alone, not part of his Cork O’Connor series) is VERY different. From the first page to the last, this is a hard charging, atmospheric, political assassination, psychological thriller. Krueger is a good writer who is able to keep his characters and plot clear throughout numerous twists and turns. The politics are familiar to any reader of the newspaper, but Krueger manages to make it new. The family drama (husband/wife/boyfriend?/father) is an integral part of the plot.
I have discovered a new favorite writer who can deliver thrillers as easily as gentler family dramas.
