A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER FO THE HIGHEST ORDER!

pastedGraphic.pdf

The bar for Jessica Strawser is a bit higher than it is for most authors since she cut her teeth editing Writer’s Digest.  But I’m happy to report that Not that I Could Tell finds her not just practicing what she preached but doing so in a manner that makes for a smooth and sultry match for Lisa Gardner. As in Gardner’s books, as well as those of Harlan Coben, something apparently innocuous gives birth to spills and thrills.  In Strawser’s latest, that event is something as simple as a lady’s night out—until, that is, one of those ladies turns up missing.  That’s easily enough to roil the small, close-knit community of Yellow Springs where things like that don’t happen, as the book’s moral center Clara learns as she battles her own past in trying to unravel the mystery. Not that I Could Tell is a psychological thriller of the highest order, as well written as it is structured.  That means the magazine Strawser once edited might well be covering her from the other side and deservedly so.
