Review by Norma
I have never read anything by RANDALL SILVIS before and I thought that TWO DAYS GONE was a fairly good murder mystery/thriller with aspects of it written like a literary fiction novel. I really enjoyed the authors writing style and the narrative throughout this story as it was very interesting and entertaining, which is actually what made me appreciate this book so much more.
The story was told in two different points of view that of Thomas Huston a writer and professor who was accused of murder and Detective Ryan DeMarco who was tracking him down. I actually really enjoyed both of these characters; they were funny, witty, and a bit sarcastic with each of them dealing with their own personal struggles.
The story unravels slowly as we follow along with Detective DeMarco’s investigation, learning all the different facts and sides of the people involved. You can’t help but feel for Huston that there must be a reasonable explanation for his actions.
It was an interesting, enjoyable, steady-paced, quick and easy read with a satisfying ending. Would recommend!!
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book.
