Avenue of Regrets: A Suspenseful Psychological Thriller
David Wallace is sitting in a San Francisco bar seven years to the day after he made the worst mistake of his life, a mistake that led to the death of his wife and son in a car crash. Sipping his third Mexican martini, an attractive brunette in her forties begins a conversation with him. Receiving a phone call that obviously upsets her, she rushes out, thrusting into David’s hand a business card with a strange message scribbled on the back: Things were not what they seemed seven years ago. It soon becomes apparent that someone is manipulating David to discover what really happened to his family. Peeling back the layers of deception, however, comes at a heavy price–dead bodies, desperate near-death escapes, appalling acts of torture, and sickening episodes of abuse. But it’s not all violence. The story is also a revealing window into David’s efforts to atone for past sins–he now manages a shelter for battered women–and his burgeoning romance with one of the center’s survivors. The intriguing opening and the well-crafted, tension-filled plot make Avenue of Regrets a mystery-thriller well worth reading.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
