Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
In Nine Lives, we meet Kate, a fifty-nine-year old artist who has had awretched string of luck when it comes to men, and who is now goingthrough the motions of a day-to-day existence. She has health issues,smokes too much, and is plagued by an inner voice that constantlymonitors her decisions.

Much of the story is written inexpository style, admittedly not something I am used to. The reader istreated to a lot of background information about how Kate's life hasevolved and how each day unfolds. She's made mistakes, bad choices shenow recognizes, and has been taken advantage of by more than one man.Kate hopes the worst is behind her--especially now, with a female mentorand friend who offers the steadfast support she has been lacking. Sadly, there are still hurdles to overcome, the toll of which becomes evidentwhen several in Kate's orbit meet with foul play.

The writing iscrisp, the descriptions vivid. Dialogue, when it appears, is well done,although the bulk of the book relies on narrative. I did find several of the scenes difficult to read and had to skim them. That aside, theauthor did an excellent job in creating a thoroughly reprehensiblevillain, who I couldn't wait to see reach a justifiable end.

This book is a slow burn, very dark, with a somber tone. It creeps alonglike a slowly oozing poison or slithering snake that strikes with deadly precision in its concluding moments.
