This weekend I began a novel by another of the authors I enjoy reading: Motive by Jonathan Kelleerman. The story begins early on with a conundrum:
In the lobby of Cohen’s building, Milo said, “Ursula’s mouthpieces sticks up for Richard and Richard’s mouthpiece thinks the world of Ursula. Next, I’m expecting a van full of hippies distrributing daisies.”
“Peace and love,” I said. “Meanwhile, Ursula’s in a van on her way to the morgue.”
He stared at me. “Isn’t cynicism my gig?”
“A little sharing never hurt anyone.” (p35, Ballantine Books, New York, 2015)
As the story progresses, other questions are added to this first one. I look forward to seeing where the story ends and to seeing what Alex Delaware gets up to in this novel. .
What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.
