Tess Gerritsen proved a little too much for some of our members. Her graphic descriptions and presence of evil made for some uneasy nights. But for those of us with less queasy stomaches, we carried through and had a good discussion on the genre of ‘mysteries’ and what is now the difference between a mystery and a crime novel.
As for the characters, Bob was unsure as to how realistic they, and the workings of the US law enforcement, really were. And how far are we to suspend believe in such things?
The Mephisto Club was Patricia’s choice and she really does enjoy Tess Gerritsen’s novels. As for the rest of us, we may not be rushing back, but we found it interesting to make the journey into her world and believe that if you have a soft spot for thriller crime, you’ll enjoy this and probably all her titles.
