The Writing Class
Amy Gallup has taught many University Extension writing courses over the years, but this class is quite different. First of all, the generally misanthropic Amy discovers that she seems to like this particular class. Then, there's The Sniper. Someone in the class is playing malicious pranks on others in the class, and even on Amy, herself.
When The Sniper's pranks turn deadly, the class decides to continue to meet, and together they try to discover the identity of The Sniper, in spite of the fact that he is still among them.
The Writing Class is extremely clever and well-crafted. The characters were written with real depth, and the fascinating plot moved forward beautifully. The fact that it was set in the area in which I live was a fun bonus, and I can attest to the accuracy of the setting.
This was a fun read, but at the same time it had real substance; something generally lacking in light, fun reads.
This was an excellent book, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good mystery, or to anyone just looking for an outstanding read.
