L. Funk’s debut novel. She’s created an interesting, if somewhat unlikeable protagonist and unreliable narrator in Gerry Lee Donahue. She alternates chapters of his boyhood with his present as an alcoholic mechanic. A childhood traumatic brain injury has left him with a scar on his head and a bizarre ability to visualize past events and to read people’s thoughts. He tries to keep his abilities under control because of the anxiety the sensations produce within him. He comments on how he’s lucky to have a sense of smell because he was told brain injuries such as his often cause anosmia. It’s never mentioned that frontal lobe injuries of the brain can often cause problems with executive function and the ability to tell right from wrong. He’s raised in a horrible family situation, so it’s the old nature versus nurture question: did his alcoholism and his prickly personality stem from the brain injury or the poor upbringing. He’s picking up a car for resale when he picks up the vibes of a serial killer from an automobile. The setting, in “near upstate New York” with its gritty salted winter roads, mirrors the “noir” tone of the book nicely.

    I have just read a first novel by a lady mystery writer that was hard to put down until it was finished. S.L Funk has done a truly great job on this work. It is “creepy scary” at times and goes into great detail. It is very similar to some of Stephen King’s works and if you like the way he writes you will appreciate this book also. She does a fine job of keeping two plots going at the same time reminiscent of many of Clive Cussler’s books which is difficult to do without shorting one plot or the I have just read a first novel by a lady mystery writer that was hard to put down until it was finished.

She does a fine job of keeping two plots going at the same time reminiscent of many of Clive Cussler’s books which is difficult to do without shorting one plot or the other. Gerry Lee Donahue is the “hero” of this story which covers his youth and later as a grown man. He suffers a bad childhood who gets shot accidently which damages his frontal lobe of his brain and as a full grown man he is given to excessive drink which causes him many problems with his goals, his employment, and his life in general. You will find many surprises as the story develops and it is truly a hard nosed look at reality. I would highly recommend the purchase and reading of this novel.
