Revenge!
Nothing gets a reader’s pulse rate up more than a well-plotted revenge story. Here are two top-notch examples for this month's discussion: THE SON by Jo Nesbo – Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic and complacent young man, in prison now for a dozen years, nearly half his life. He is the seemingly malleable center of an entire infrastructure of corruption: prison staff, police, lawyers, a desperate priest. But when he learns a stunning, long-hidden secret concerning his father, he makes a brilliantly executed escape from prison—and from the person he’d let himself become—and begins hunting down those responsible for the crimes against him. But who will get to him first—the criminals or the cops? 417 pp LONDON FIELDS by Martin Amis – Cursed with premonitions since childhood, Nicola foresees her own murder, and sets out to make the two most likely suspects pay in advance for what one of them is going to do to her (NPR). “This is a brilliant, funny and multi-layered novel” (Goodreads). 470 pp
