I wasn’t sure I would make it past 20%, so dire are the straits in which Tennyson Olivia Foxhall finds herself in the opening chapters of the book. She’s being held captive for medical reasons by the neurologist fiancé she can no longer remember, seemingly abandoned by friends and family, with no hope of getting away. I have a hard time reading relentless damsel (or dude) in distress storytelling. But Tennyson gets her tenacious on and manages to find some degree of relief before her despair envelops me completely.
I’m now 100% finished, and I have to say it’s the best thing Ellen Byerrum has ever written. I could not put it down yesterday. I basically finished it in one sitting. It is the most compelling book I’ve read in a long time, more can’t-put-it-down than books by David Baldacci and Harlan Coben I’ve read recently. It's a wonderful thriller every fan of Ellen's will enjoy. And one the new Byerrum reader will like just as much. It's really a thriller.
Oh, and to answer the questions I posed in the headline, it’s all of these things. Except one. Read The Dollhouse in the Crawlspace. You’ll see what I mean.
Byerrum’s Tennyson is a bright, engaging, resilient leading starlet. It is obvious wherever Byerrum goes, she soaks up her surroundings and the payoff is always in the characters she richly sketches.
Byerrum’s twists are brilliantly layered and liberally piled on. The ending doesn’t waver an ounce as it reaches its pulse-pounding climax.
Byerrum doesn’t just write words on paper or taps letters on a screen, she unequivocally delivers a theatrical chef-d'oeuvre with every story she creates.
The Dollhouse in the Crawlspace is Byerrum’s literary masterpiece.

Amnesia, double identities, secrets, lies, and an evil genius… It is impossible to put this book down. The characters are complex. The story is imaginative and compelling.
This would be a 5 star book but for the unresolved ending. I have a deep seated need to know what happens next.
4 1/4 stars
