Early Review: Bluff by Jane Stanton Hitchcock

I always loved Dominick Dunne books. Bluff has all the hallmarks of Dunne's best books-high society, intrigue, and sly commentary about the utter banality of human greed. I love thrillers and mysteries and can usually suss out plot twists early, but I can honestly say that Bluff surprised me at several turns. Major props to the skillfull writing of Hitchcock, though. Often twisty books just feel plot driven and inorganic. In Bluff each twist was organic, earned, and contributed to the tightly-paced narrative.

Also, it was highly refreshing, in an age of the “girl” thriller, to read a thriller where older women seize their destiny and drive the plot.

Bluff hits stores April 2nd.
