Description

In every person's story, there is something to hide...

The ornate reading room at the Boston Public Library is quiet, until the tranquility is shattered by a woman's terrified scream. Security guards take charge immediately, instructing everyone inside to stay put until the threat is identified and contained. While they wait for the all-clear, four strangers, who'd happened to sit at the same table, pass the time in conversation and friendships are struck. Each has his or her own reasons for being in the reading room that morning—it just happens that one is a murderer.

Award-winning author Sulari Gentill delivers a sharply thrilling read with THE WOMAN IN THE LIBRARY, an unexpectedly twisty literary adventure that examines the complicated nature of friendship and shows us that words can be the most treacherous weapons of all.

I am new to author Sulari Gentill, but can now be placed firmly in the category of Huge Fan. The Woman in the Library is written in an unusual format which I thoroughly enjoyed; a fan writing the author with manuscript feedback and suggestions. The manuscript mirroring a meeting of four strangers in the Boston Public Library and the resulting friendships. Ms. Gentill writes a smart, story with some surprising twists. I enjoy her voice and her subtle humor. And I loved this book!
