This week's excellent read is Staci Troilo Amazon Author Page
It's in the blood. Blood is thicker than water, as the old sayin goes, and this tale is all about the power of blood.
A family secret of infidelity and misdirection comes to light because of blood.
A young woman dies because of this secret. And that's just in chapter one!
Secrets, Lies, Adultery, and Other Deadly Sins
Type and Cross tells the story of a family who seem by all appearances to be the kind of family many people wish they had. Dad is a highly successful doctor. Mom does high level charity work. The kids go to private school. They have a housekeeper who keeps their lavish home spic and span, cooks their meals, and makes a fantastic cup of java.
But that's just on the surface. That's what the outside world sees. THe truth is dark and sordid.
Character Development through an Onion Plot
I don't read much mainstream. Mostly I find it boring. Not so with Type and Cross. I adore suspense, and this book has it in spades. Staci Troilo created a plot with more layers than an onion.
Just when one plot twist comes to disrupt life for the doctor and his family, another is beginning to peal back its layer to reveal a stinging truth.
Family dynamics play a big role in this book. And in an era where people so easily throw away anything that doesn't work, some characters in this novel try to mend fences.
