I do have a strong preference for literary mysteries and suspense novels that give us an insight into what motivates a human being to break character and do the unthinkable. I love an engrossing read that not only incorporates a keen story line and engaging plot, but also offers the reader a character driven and thought provoking experience.

SHRINKING, by Jack McDermott, braids all of these fine attributes with a provocative page turner, that is reflection of the anxious times we live in.
