I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Mary Maurice’s mystery The Suicide Letters of Jack Monroe, which I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received an advance copy to read and review.)
The Suicide Letters of Jack Monroe is a fascinating, psychological mystery. The novel is written in the form of letter between Jack and Susan. Jack has arrived in Santa Fe to meet Susan, to help her write a suicide letter, which is what Jack does for a living.
Through July we only have Jack’s letters to Susan and along with Jack, we wonder where she is and what she wants. We learn about Jack’s mother’s suicide and the deaths of several other people. The letters seem very intimate and we get a glimpse into his private thoughts.
As the number of letters builds from Jack, we can see his turmoil increase. Finally, letters arrive from Susan in August, although never as many as Jack’s. The questions we have keep adding up and we wonder what the truth is, what is real. The mystery keeps us involved until the very end.
If you enjoy mysteries, with a touch of a psychological thriller, you’ll certainly enjoy this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and do recommend you read it.
