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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
