THE FORGOTTEN ROOM by Lincoln Child
Here you have it – an exciting thriller with no profanity, no hot and heavy sex and little violence. Well, there is some violence – several murders, a grisly suicide (or maybe not a suicide), a crazy person or two, a secret room with diabolical machines and, of course, the hapless scholar cum detective.
The characters are decently drawn, the plot is clear, the tension is heart stopping. It is easy to see why Child is a bestselling author. If you like mysteries that slowly draw you in and then amp up the tension, this is the book for you. One of the best of the genre.
