After a successful first novel, Marcus Goldman is now facing a serious case of writer's block and the deadline for his second block is looming ever closer. He turns to Harry, his mentor and old professor, for help and from there a whole set of events begin to unravel beginning when a body of a teenage girl is found in his mentor's back yard and the summer of 1975 becomes crucial.
I loved the way it is told in a first person narrative and also uses a timeline in an interesting way, bringing more depth to the relationship between Marcus and Harry.
Just make sure you get a friend to read it at the same time as you because I wish I had had someone to talk all my theories through with: I had so many theories.
One of the most enjoyable books I have read this year.
