Dead Line by Richard Sanders: Review
Dead Line by Richard Sanders
In Richard Sanders latest novel, magazine publisher Trish Fenellosa, is experiencing a break with reality where she actually believes she has being possessed by the spirit of the late prime minister of India, Indira Gandhi. And her psychosis goes back further, right to her early teens with the brutal murder of her sister. Even though her body was never found, Trish was convicted of the crime and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison.
When the sentence was overturned in a retrial, a twenty-two-year-old Trish walks out of prison and begins her new life by starting a magazine which quickly becomes highly successful. But every secret in the dark past comes to the glaring light when a car accident Trish is involved in doesn’t appear to be quite so accidental.
Dead Line is a fascinating and quirky tale full of odd, well drawn characters, especially Trish in all her weirdness and mystery. Richard Sanders does a fantastic job of weaving these characters into an intense, vivid story with all the suspense and mystery of a good thriller. An exceptionally well written thrill ride of a novel.
