Yes, “Disorder” does follow the good-guy-pursued-by-shadowy-government-bad-guys formula and the solution to the core mystery is evident fairly early on. But where it excels is in the excellent writing, believable characters and plot development. Nothing ruins a mystery/thriller for me more than ridiculous character behavior and illogical plot points. Fortunately, Magrane managed to avoid those pitfalls. There is also an added dimension in different characters’ psychological issues (the hero is a psychologist) which added to the story but were not used as a crutch to explain away weak plot points. They did, however, provide some interesting twists and turns.
Another refreshing aspect was the lack of excessive graphic violence, sex and language. It seems too common now for those to be used as a ploy in modern thrillers and frankly I find it tedious.
Although “Disorder” is a perfect standalone, another Sam Keddie book DENIAL has just been released and I’ve already picked it up. I also want to acknowledge the publisher, Fahrenheit Press. They are a new publishing house that I discovered in a convoluted way. I’ve ended up getting several of their titles and although I’ve only read a few of them so far, they have been consistently well written and edited. And (important to me anyway) their pricing doesn’t make me cringe :) So if you’re like me and always looking for something good to read but don’t have an unlimited budget, you might check out their titles.
Protagonist Keddie is a satisfyingly screwed-up psychotherapist who knows too much about the ways people think and feel, and about the emotional turbulence he tries and fails to smother within himself.
When a patient Keddie may or may not have done enough for commits suicide, Keddie is in mortal danger and on the run.
To save himself, Keddie must uncover the dark secret that drove his patient over the edge and that very powerful people will do anything to protect.
I look forward to reading Magrane's next installment and spending more quality time with Sam Keddie.
