Will Lavender is a real find.  In his debut novel Obedience, Lavender has managed to nail that most difficult of genres, the psychological thriller.  It is a particularly well crafted, intriguing tale and you are quickly drawn into the challenge set of the main characters – to solve the hypothetical disappearance of a young woman as their fall assignment in their university course Logic and Reasoning 204.  As the clues are dangled and it becomes obvious that things – and people – aren’t what they seem, three of the students stumble upon a real-life, unsolved disappearance which has strikingly similar facts to the so-called scenario they have been set by their professor.

Just when you think you know what’s happening, Lavender tilts everything on it’s axis and you have to go back to your mental drawing board.  This fast-paced thriller is a stunning read and would easily lend itself to being adapted into a fine movie script.  I could almost visualise it as I read it.  On finishing this novel, I immediately searched for his next and fortunately I wasn’t disappointed.  His second offering was published last month and the synopsis for Dominance holds much promise.  I already have a reserve on the ordered copy at my local public library and I am anticipating the email to tell me it’s ready to collect.  Can’t wait!  In the meantime, get your hands on a copy of Obedience.  You won’t be sorry.
