With a driving north wind coming down the Hudson, it was ugly out there to say the least. As I watched whitecaps smashing against the seawall, I remembered standing on a dock with Felicia, back to when she was around five. It was a nasty day, not unlike today, and she looked out across the water, remarking that it was nervous. As in, the opposite of calm. I think that sums it up perfectly.
“A mystery in the John D. MacDonald tradition – both in its largely watery setting and tone, the novel also brings to mind Dashiell Hammett in the complexity of its plot, and even Stieg Larsson in its use of a strong young woman with an attitude as a main character. Last Exit In New Jersey is well-paced, densely-plotted story that mystery-thriller fans will enjoy immensely.”
