My rating: 4.5
This is a departure from Fossum's usual detective series. This book is about an author and her characters.
A woman wakes up in the middle of the night to find a man in her room. She is paralyzed with fear. As they talk, she realizes that he is a character who is so desperate that he has jumped the queue and broken into her home demanding that he be next for his story to be told.
This was a very creative story telling method and I thoroughly enjoyed it but can understand those that didn't.
