“Cards on the Table” by Josh Lanyon
Timothy North is investigating a fifty
year-old murder – so why would someone object? But it seems
that someone doesn’t want Tim to write this book and isn’t
averse to threatening Tim to get the point across. And as
if Tim doesn’t have enough on his plate Jack, one of his
neighbors, is sending Tim such mixed signals that Tim isn’t
sure exactly what to expect from the Jack.
Josh Lanyon does a wonderful job in
“Cards on the Table” creating enough suspense and
uncertainty around Tim, who is a compelling character, to
keep you turning the pages. This is the first time I’ve
read something by Josh Lanyon and I will certainly go
looking for more.
