A Beautiful Madness - Lee  Thompson

In Lee Thompson's latest work, he moves away from his comfort zone and tries his hand in the crime/thriller genre. While I had some trepidation about this one due to him trying something new, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it worked for me.  The storyline is narrated by the main character, Sammy.  While first person omniscient rarely works well in stories, it worked quite nicely here and I had no issues with it at all. The story flowed nicely, aided by Thompson's skill as an author in such a complex plot. Just when I was getting comfortable with the story, Thompson threw in a twist that shocked me and kept me riveted to the story until the very end. If you've never read Thompson before or even if you have, give this one a try; I'm certainly glad that I did!  Highly recommended!
