Fast Track is fast-paced
on September 30, 2005
DeDakis' debut novel is a page-turner, full of interesting sub-plots, suspense, and energy. One can easily imagine this as movie material, because it is very visual and action-filled. The protagonist and narrator is a young woman, and DeDakis easily makes the transition to a woman's voice. He clearly understands her motivation and her character. She, Lark, is a likable and appealing figure, and she, foibles and strengths combined, makes the entire novel attractive and interesting. The 300 pages of this mystery go by fast, and mystery lovers will find it compelling. This reader hopes for more novels to come from this author, whose profession is editing the early morning news for CNN.
