Double Solitaire (2021)
(Quinn Farrell, book 1)
Craig Nova
"When it comes to creating a believable, suspenseful situation, enlivened by quirky but realistic characters, few writers I know can hold a candle to Craig Nova. Long admired, by readers and writers alike, for his superb prose, Nova often doesn’t get enough credit for his deft plotting, haunting atmospherics, and unforgettable people. In Double Solitaire, he returns to Los Angeles, his native territory, and offers a story drawn from that city’s secret alcoves, a tale that perfectly blends dark intrigue and the starlight of love, the ugliness of violence and the beauty of the humane gesture. I stayed up late to finish this novel, and when I finally set it aside, it echoed in my memory for days, all its complexities and subtleties sparkling like the facets of a gem. One measure of a fine novel is an apparent simplicity beneath which all the heartbreak and decency of human interaction roils and twirls. Nova entertains, provokes, enlightens, and educates. His Double Solitaire is the work of a master at the top of his game."
