The Right Thing (Book) - 7/8/2007 11:27:48 AM
The Right Thing By James Richard Larson ISBN: 0-595-42736-7 Paperback, ©2007, iUniverse Review ©2007 Sabrina Williams for Armchair Interviews Elsbeth Malone was an aspiring author. She wanted desperately to be published. With each agency's rejection letter, she became more despondent. Her husband Johnny stood by her through it all, knowing in his heart that she had talent and it was only a matter of time before someone else realized that. When Elsbeth committed suicide, Johnny blamed himself. How could he not have seen how deeply depressed she had become? Only Johnny had no idea the degree to which Elsbeth's desperation had progressed. The note she left said that she had done something terrible that she couldn't stop. He knew that Elsbeth had been dabbling in magic, but all of that dark magic stuff is make-believe, right? Then again, Elsbeth's best friend, Mary, did claim to have seen a dark, cloaked figure outside the day she found Elsbeth's body. That is, she saw him right before she lost her mind for a period of time and was found wandering aimlessly down the rural streets. The police could find no evidence the man actually existed. Two years have passed and Johnny is still trying to fill the void Elsbeth left in his life. Unbeknownst to him, something peculiar has been plaguing the literary world. It seems agents are committing horrific suicides left and right, all shortly after a visit from a dark, cloaked man identifying himself as William Bagnold from Two Ravens Publishing out of London. Problem is, Two Ravens Publishing hasn't existed since 1944. And Bagnold claims he is representing a client by the name of Elsbeth Malone. The Right Thing by James Richard Larson is an absolutely thrilling novel. It is refreshing to find an author with such literary adeptness in the horror genre. Larsonís style could be compared to that of Stephen King, without the quirkiness. The story lacks any degree of predictability, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat from the first until the very last page. *I am astounded this novel came from a vanity press. I became glued to it from page one, I would think publishers would be scrambling for it. Although I'm wondering if the terrible things that keep happening to agents in the novel has anything to do with it, LOL?
