The Girl with a Clock for a Heart
George Foss is stunned to spot her in his local tavern: his first love, the girl who fascinated him, the girl who never left his thoughts for long… the girl who quite possibly committed murder and then vanished. When Liana Decter walks back into George’s life, asking for his help to get her out of some hot water, George knows he’ll say yes, no matter how complicated things get. And the complications are lurking just around the corner…
The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is a razor-sharp thriller, one that plunges us into a rich, tangled mystery and an equally rich, tangled story of affection, lust, and manipulation. Although I found the backstory of George and Liana’s relationship more engaging than the contemporary mystery and action, both are well-paced, populated with dark, damaged, interesting characters. George, despite his flaws, is a great protagonist, constantly one step behind everyone else, but a terrific character for the reader to inhabit as he tries to navigate the chaos Liana brings into his life.
No matter what you end up thinking of George, Liana, and the others caught up in their wake, you’ll enjoy the outlandish, labyrinthine ride.
