Book Review: A World I Never Made

A World I Never Made by James Lepore

I was given an advance copy of this "novel of suspense", and eagerly tore into it and it's locales of Paris and Prague...

Pat Nolan is called on New Year's Day to identify the body of his daughter, Megan, who has apparently committed suicide in Paris. What he finds when he arrives at the morgue, however, is that Megan isn't the girl on the slab, and some clues begin to take him on a race against time to find his missing daughter. Along the way, he joins forces (and lips!) with Catherine Laurence, a Parisian detective who takes a leave of absence to join Pat in the search for Megan...

Running parallel to Pat's story is the story of Megan, set a year before, as she explores Morocco and falls for an Arab man who is not all he seems...

This is a well-paced, intriguing story that weaves a lot of threads together before finally bringing them all back for the somewhat surprising finale. I really enjoyed the locations, the intrigue, and for me, Megan's struggle to extricate herself from a good situation gone bad...

Recommended for fans of fast paced suspense!

Note: This title will be released in April 2009.
