Since I read a great deal about her family, I could trace some of the plot points to her own heritage. An unsung classic of nineteenth-century Russian literature, Karolina Pavlova’s A Double Life alternates prose and poetry to offer a wry picture of Russian aristocratic society and vivid dreams of escaping its strictures. The second volume covers the rest: Nashville Skyline, the wild Rolling Thunder tour, the religious albums, the Traveling Wilburys, the low points, the comebacks, the Christmas album, the Nobel prize. Trying to figure out how to introduce Canadian Kevin Chong’s ferociously courageous new novel, The Double Life of Benson Yu, feels problematic.

Drawn from the personal experiences of its author, this is a glittering love letter to the Great White Way, and all the crazy, gifted people who keep it humming. The 7th Earl of Lucan was a British aristocrat who tried to murder his wife, accidently murdered the nanny, while his young children slept upstairs. A powerful additive is her father is a Lord from the United Kingdom hierarchy, which was thought that his privileged friends aided and abetted him.What a BRILLIANT book… I was on edge every single second… At one point I realised my body was literally tensed up in anticipation.

The spy element ( more trafficking) is rather peripheral to the story despite the publicity surrounding the book suggesting otherwise . Christian Science Monitor A Double Life is an appealing novel, offering a colorful, penetrating portrait of Moscow's high society in those times, especially the lives of the wives and women in it.Orthofer, The Complete Review A Double Life has plenty to say about how the marriage market deprived young noblewomen of outward agency and constrained their inner lives.

If you prefer your thrillers to be character-driven and lean a bit more toward the literary side of things, I'd highly recommend giving Flynn Berry a try. Entiendo que lo que le ocurrió marca la vida de cualquiera, pero las decisiones que toma siendo adulta no me gustan demasiado.A new star has arrived in the thriller firmament' The Times, Book of the Month Gabriela is a senior negotiator in the Foreign Office. Why must so many revenge fantasies fixate in such detail on the physical mutilation of women’s bodies? And she ended it rather well, I thought, avoiding the melodramatic damsel in extreme distress that can overshadow an otherwise well-written thriller.

As Gabriela's life begins to unravel, Isobel gets closer to the truth, and the two women's lives converge in this deeply chilling examination of deceit. Will the older Benson be able to escape the demon of alcoholism that came about from his sexual abuse as a child at the hands of C. Each time she is notified about a possible sighting of her father, she is tossed back into a cycle of intense rumination leading to dubious machinations.She is also the daughter of the most notorious murder suspect in the country, though no one knows it. Twenty six years ago, while Claire and her brother were asleep upstairs in their London home, her father brutally murdered Claire’s nanny and then attempted to murder her mother.
