What I Loved About BLACK WIDOW by Christopher Brookmyre
I had the chance to meet and interview Brookmyre for a "Meet the Author" style interview at the Bloody Scotland crime conference this fall, and walked away convinced that I needed to read his books. I'm so glad that I did - Brookmyre's writing is sophisticated, gritty, and totally engaging. You can read my full review of BLACK WIDOW here, but in case you need extra convincing that Brookmyre belongs on your TBR, here’s a brief snippet from my review!
Though it's about a year old now, BLACK WIDOW was a breath of fresh air to this reader: this is a psychological thriller that delves into the secrets of a marriage with the intelligence, masterful plotting, and psychological astuteness that define truly great crime fiction. On the surface, BLACK WIDOW is a standard domestic thriller: a story about a marriage gone horribly, horribly wrong, and an unveiling of the deadly secrets that existed between husband and wife. But there is so much more to this crime novel. BLACK WIDOW is a maze of deceit—it demands that the reader pay close attention as Brookmyre unravels the twisted web at its core. BLACK WIDOW is also a commentary on sexism in the workplace—a topic that is all too timely as I write this review, and one which Brookmyre navigates through his compelling main character, surgeon Diana Jager. BLACK WIDOW is complicated, complex, and impactful - in short, it's a standout.
