Cluster’s cast of characters is a multi-racial, intergenerational assortment of rich and poor, where wealthy patrons of the arts and working class hookers play equal parts in helping Alex solve the mystery at hand. From the heart of historic, Brahmin Cambridge to the wooded cross country trails of the Granite State, this installment of the Glauberman series picks up right where Return to Sender left off without skipping a beat. A physically and spiritually renewed Alex Glauberman drives the narrative while familiar characters in Return to Sender, including his friend Bernie, daughter Maria and girlfriend Meredith, step into the fold to play critical supporting roles. An intriguing and complex plot that holds you in suspense throughout!
This is a book I was about to quit reading several times after covering 30 + pages, again and again. Yet, I kept reading and I am glad that I didn't quit. The main character is not just complex, but a hardly unbelievable one. A Jewish car mechanic, occasional sleuth, tai chi and cross-country skiing expert and practitioner who lives with a daughter left for him from a marriage ended in divorce, living momentarily but separately with a shikse who is a college professor.
A would be murder mystery that unfolds and gets involved in against his better judgment which he finally solves. The plot is not free of unexplained deus ex machine twist but at the end of the day you forgive that because of intelligent writing and everybody else who writes whodoneit
