The Double Bind

If you love literary suspense, you'll enjoy Chris Bohjalian's The Double Bind. This deals with Laurel Estabrook, a cyclist and a social worker, who were assaulted and raped in Vermont by two men. Years ago, one of her clients gave her a batch of photos, when he died. This takes Laurel to a somewhat obsession of finding out he's identity, when she pushed the people away, who think she's crazy. When she believes she's onto something, some people don't want her to have. There's a literary twist here that deals with the Great Gatsby. There's a shocking twist towards the end. I thought it was okay and leave it up to you to judge on this book. Enjoy!

  1. I LOVED this book. I think I've read all of his books, even the newest Secrets of Eden, but Double Bind WOWED me.
