Alexandra is a quick and captivating read about a middle aged man driven down a rabbit hole by lust. Set in (and presumably near) New Orleans, the reader is privileged to puzzle out the motivations of a cast of characters with a murderous secret. While the tone of the story travels far from where it begins, it knows what exactly it’s doing. I enjoyed this book. It ended very cleanly. I’m uncertain whether any of the characters are likable or even hatable, which I think is a testament to how well written they are.

Would I read more by the author?: Yes.

Rating: 8/10
