From Kirkus, no less, the folks who called THE SKELETON BOX “Complex But Lumpy.” Which got me a cool T-shirt bearing those words from my wife.
Authors love it when a reviewer appears to “get” their books. Being an insecure writer type, I thought at first that “murky” and “exhausting” could be on a new T-shirt. But they’re actually meant as compliments for a book that explores many murky ethical pools and exhausts (or at least tries to exhaust) every possibility for drama it can.
The review’s conclusion is killer: “A deep dive into the deepest secrets of a one-family town and its leading family that sometimes gets murky, even exhausting, but is never less than enthralling. And you’ll finish it with a wonderful sense that you’ve finally come up for air.”
