Clear the day, brew up some coffee and settle in for an exciting read you won't be able to put down. I was hooked from the first paragraph in the foreword of `Brink' by Richard Whitten Barnes, his latest mystery novel with a twist of romance. This book is fast paced action that guarantees a wild ride as you explore the world of Dr. Ben Posner who falls from grace, loses his job, as well as, his house and hits the bottle hard. You'll find yourself captivated by this decent man who fights his way through his problems, gets his life on the road to normalcy once again, only to be charged with murder. He is supported by a fascinating cast of characters, especially Angela Bell, Dr. Yang, his wife Annie and Posner's son Michael. Getting to know all of them was a real treat as they struggle to help Dr. Posner.
Barnes novel 'Brink' is a page turner. I raced to the end trying to figure out the murderer with a long list of viable suspects. I found myself rooting for Ben Posner and hoping he would finally be able to turn his life around. The sweet romance in the book is an added bonus.
I highly recommend this book. It is a great read and you won't be disappointed. In fact, you'll be thrilled you had the chance to get to know his array of fascinating people. I'll be looking forward to Barnes next novel.
