Trust No One by Paul Cleave - A Book Review
Trust No One by Paul Cleave is a fascinating journey into the disintegrating mind of mystery writer Jerry Gray aka Henry Cutter who is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at 49. He decides to keep a journal of his mental deterioration so he can read about who he was as he loses himself.
At times the narrative was challenging to follow. This felt a bit like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" meets "Psycho" with a dash of the movies "Memento" and "Away From Her".
The story was creative and engaging, keeping me wanting to know what would happen next, what was real and what was imaginary.I felt compassion for Jerry Gray, but skeptical of who he was and who he had been.
There are twists and turns that I did not figure out until the very end. Then the pieces did seem to fit together.
I was not familiar with Paul Cleave until I read Trust No One, but I will look for some of his earlier works.
Note: I received a pre-release copy of this book to review from Bookbrowse.com
This book will be released August 4, 2015.
