I just finished reading Lateral Hazard. If you enjoy reading mysteries, you will enjoy this one. It has more twists and turns than a mountain trail. At various times I suspected several of the characters in the book, only to find that I was completely wrong. Once you’ve read it, and know who committed the murder, you will, like me, shake your head and say, I didn’t see that coming.
The writing is excellent. The story moves along quite nicely. At first I was bothered by the fits and starts, jumping from one character’s story to another’s, but in the end, it all made perfect sense and was quite enjoyable.
It’s quite easy for me to see this book being made into a movie, a movie that does quite well at the box office. One of the main characters is a quite despicable, amoral attorney. Another is his lovely, talented and much-ignored daughter. Each of the characters in the story is inflicted with faults and failings as well as admirable qualities, and all are quite believable.
Buy this book. Read it. You won’t regret it.
