The Girl with a Clock for a Heart

An atmospheric tale of romantic noir with shades of Hitchcock about a man who is swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears.
George Foss, a forty-year-old employee of a Boston literary magazine, has passed the age when he thinks he might fall madly in love or take the world by storm, or have anything truly remarkable happen to him. He spends most of his evenings at his local tavern talking about the Red Sox and the minutiae of everyday life, and obsessing over a lost love from his college days who vanished twenty years earlier. Until she reappears.
George has both dreamed of and dreaded seeing Liana Decter again. She isn't just an ex-girlfriend or the first love George could never forget. She's also an enigma and quite possibly someone who was involved in a murder years ago, a woman whose transgressions are more in line with Greek tragedy than youthful indiscretion. But suddenly, she's backand she needs his help. She says that some men are after her and that they believe she's stolen money from them. And now they will do whatever it takes to get it back.
George knows Liana is trouble. But he can't say nohe never couldand soon his quiet life is gone as he is pulled into a terrifying whirlpool of lies, betrayal, and murder from which there is no sure escape.
Bold and masterful, full of malevolent foreboding and subtle surprises, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is an addictive, nonstop reading experiencean ever-tightening coil of suspense that will hold you in its grip right up to its electrifying end.

Gut zu lesen
von Henry Gärtner aus Kaarst am 04.02.2015
Bewertet: Format: eBook (ePUB)

Spannend, tolle Wendungen und z.T. rabenschwarz. Veranlasst einen aber auch oft zum Schmunzeln. Ist m.E. auch für Leser mit mittelmäßigen Englischkenntnisssen gut zu lesen. Ich freue mich schon auf den Nachfolger "The Kind Worth Killing".
