Review
Written by the author/director/producer of the excellant TV show "Fargo", this book was touted by the NY Times as the "best thriller" so far this year." I must not read enough of the thriller genre, because if THIS is the best, then what are the rest?! Because of the reviews, I had too high of expectations, I guess! This is a 'cardboard' book - stiff, cartoon-like characters, stilted writing - just like a TV show - no surprise! The premise is interesting: a small private jet crashes into the Atlantic returning its rich occupants to NYC after a weekend at Cape Cod. Only two occupants survive -- intriguing, huh? Well, perhaps you would like it better than I did! Good luck?
