Another Indie Favorite
The Girl With a Clock for a Heart: A
Novel, by Peter Swanson (William Morrow
Paperbacks, $14.99) “This brilliant debut thriller has
all the characteristics necessary for bestsellerdom! There is
George Foss, an everyman protagonist who has never gotten
over his first college sweetheart; Liana Dector, that first love,
now a femme fatale who is as stunning as she is unpredictable;
and a plot with surprises and twists on every other page. The
Girl With a Clock for a Heart will take its rightful place beside my
favorites from Michael Connelly and Dennis Lehane!” —Jerry
