A taut and terrifying thriller about the lengths to which we'll go to make our dreams come true Hedda Chase is a top flight executive producer at Gladiator Films fast tracked in the business since she graduated from Yale An aggressive businesswoman she recently pulled the plug on a film project initiated by one of her predecessors The screenwriter on the project was Hugh Waters a wannabe with a dead end marriage and a day job at an insurance company This sc This is a crime novel that I d happily recommend to anyone while at the same time warning them that they might very well not like it Brundage switches from one viewpoint character to another throughout her tale which is constructed as if almost a collection of novellas she also uses several different narrative styles from uasi hardboiled third person straightforward past tense to second person present tense hifalutin Call this sort of narrative ostentation pretentious if you like but me I like a good dose of pretentiousness and by the time I neared the novel s end the pages were turning as rapidly as if I were reading Michael Connelly or Val McDermidHugh Waters is an unhappily married closet bisexual insurance guy in New Jersey who has managed to sell to a Hollywood studio his screenplay for a thriller about a fellow who locks a woman in the trunk of his car then leaves the car at an airport long term parking lot But the studio producer who bought the script has died and been replaced by newcomer Hedda Chase who loathed Hugh s script and canned the project So Hugh comes out to Hollywood to confront Hedda face to face and teach her a lesson drugging her putting her into the trunk of her own car and leaving said car in the airport parking lotTrouble is just like in Hugh s script the car is then stolen by a petty criminal who doesn t realize there s someone in the trunk in fact by semi crippled Ira vet Denny guilty of war crimes but not so guilty as some of his comrades It takes a while for Denny and his picked up girlfriend Daisy to realize they have as it were a clandestine passenger The uestion then becomes rather one of the uestions becomes what will Denny who s no stranger to gratuitous killing do about this situationI completely admire Brundage s attempt to use a virtuoso array of narrative styles in the telling of her tale and for the most part I bought it At the same time she didn t uite pull it off not uite I groaned every time I came across a laylie illiteracy importantly Brundage like so many of her contemporaries is incompetent in the use of the various past tenses while narrating in the present tense It s not that bloody difficult frankly and it really interferes with the smoothness of the reading when a writer gets it wrong even when the reader doesn t realize why the narrative seems to hiccupNeither of those two is a major complaint well the second is a bit and like a gweat big gwown up boy I was able to get past them both As I say I loved the way that Brundage s shifts of viewpoint and narrative voice kept throwing me off balance If you have a great tale to tell as Brundage has here this is the kind of way you ought to risk telling it Readers who shy away from rollercoasters because of the risk factor probably won t like the book others might
