Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter: A Novel

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter - Tom Franklin Enjoyable thriller, with dark psychological overtones. The flash-back structure is handled well, and the prose is of a much higher quality than I usually see in this sort of work. The only problem is the outcome, the 'mystery,' really isn't one by the time you get there. The true criminal is so obviously guilty from the first time he makes an appearance on the page that it negatively affects the pacing. Although I didn't enjoy this as much as Franklin's HELL AT THE BREECH, I would recommend it to people who like mysteries. Much better than the average fare.
