OK, this thriller is not about parenting, but it does bring parenting and mentoring to mind. We all need people to look up to, but sometimes the models are tarnished beyond recognition. The mentor in this story is Reed Waters, an unlikely candidate to say the least. "Midnight on Mourn Street" is a thriller because it's fast paced with lots of twists and turns. I consider most thrillers plot-driven, but this one is an anomaly. In my opinion, it's character-driven. Conlon has the ability to make the reader emphathize with the most unlikely characters--characters that one would shy away from,or even be afraid of--in everyday life. Conlon's characters are realistic, painfully so. After reading "Midnight on Mourn Street," I feel like I should volunteer in a soup-kitchen or something.
