I read lots of fiction, but not much of it is fast-paced, hardboiled crime stuff. I am more of a literary fiction type, leaning toward T.C. Boyle, Milan Kundera, David Mitchell, and the like. Boy was it fun to read Motherless Children by Dennis Fisher!

I venture to say if you are a fan of fast-paced thrillers, you’ll totally dig this book. It is snappily written with a clear, consistent (if not quirky) voice. And it’s a page turner for sure.

As a computer security guy, I particularly enjoyed all of the references to various inside jokes and knowledge. I’m sure that avid runners will feel the same about the running content.

Buy this book (from amazon) and read it at the beach.

The best part? It is the first book of a good friend of mine Dennis Fisher. Rock on man.
