Tj O'Connor does a fantastic job with all of the misdirects he has written into New Sins for Old Scores. I found myself bouncing back and forth between characters trying to figure out who was responsible for the deaths in 1944 and the deaths now. I was certainly surprised at the outcome of the story and to finally find out who Harriet was and how the two time periods connect.
The world building, both in present times and in the past, is wonderfully descriptive. The development of each scene was done with precision and I was able to fully visualize everything that transpired. The author's writing style is easy and flows along nicely. Even with all of the angles, threads, characters, and time spans, the author does a great job keeping everything in check.
The author of New Sins for Old Scores is not new to me. I've enjoyed a couple of Tj's books in the Gumshoe Ghost Mystery series. I'm captivated by his paranormal murder mysteries and New Sins for Old Scores is another great addition to his published works.
I voluntarily reviewed a paperback copy of New Sins for Old Scores provided to me by the author.
This work is one of the finest I have read in pulling this off!
This book is jam-packed. You have two parallel stories, with their own sets of players, and then you have the third portion where they overlap. There is so much going on, so many things to keep track of – while this is definitely a page-turner, my advice is to take your time reading!
I would recommend any authors who are working with their own ensemble casts to learn from Mr. O’Connor’s example. I wasn’t quite at the point where I was diagramming character connections on a white board to keep up, but it came close. I would have loved to have watched Mr. O’Connor’s creation process – so many characters talking at once! – as in the final product all of them are well-rounded, with none lost in the background. And I admit, I hope to see hope to see more of Trick, Jax, Christie, and Finch (especially Finch) to come, perhaps.
The story itself is a wonderfully crafted tale. The plots slowly weave into each other throughout the work, like puzzle pieces handed to you at the right time. You never feel something has been shoe-horned in to make everything work – there is solid methodical planning and delivery upon which everything else is built.
This is my first O’Connor book, and I’m definitely looking forward to more!
