THE DEAD LETTERS
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
Piccirilli's latest is part psychological suspense, part thriller, part alternate reality -- and boy can he write! His prose is a joy to read; he has a unique narrative voice, and the dialogue is right on. It's a killer plot with a good mix of fascinatingly flawed characters. The protagonist is full of both wry humor and despair and the villain is psychologically complex. The secondary characters are just as memorable.
Once Eddie Whitt had a life -- until a serial killer murdered his 5-year-old daughter. Now his wife is in a mental institution and he's interacting with the dolls in his dead daughter's dollhouse.
