The Torrance File Reviews
I like being the detective and Robert J. Roy's The Torrance File allowed me to be that. Mostly a First Person Narrative—with occasional scenes from a seemingly omniscient one, almost functioning like a Greek Chorus-- Mark Harrow is not the typical detective. He is new at his job and it shows, impetuously flying halfway across the country without checking at least the internet or google maps, on the strength of an address scribbled on a resume. Then he becomes romantically involved with a suspect, telling her all his findings. No Sherlock Holmes, he, but despite his inexperience, Mark Harrow is quite endearing. Some of us “impetuous bumblers” can certainly relate to him! He's not quite the male version of Stephanie Plum (although like her he doesn't carry a gun) in the fictional world of detectives but he gave me some bad moments worrying about him, especially toward the end. So this story contains many of my favorite elements: a logic problem of clues, a likeable protagonist, surprises in the romance area and although I had originally chosen the antagonist, I discounted that person so was astonished at the conclusion. I look forward to reading the next story!
The Torrance File was great, a thrilling mystery novel filled with suspense and originality, and characters who seem like real people.
I really enjoyed this book. The plot kept me guessing and I found myself going back to it over and over. I was totally unprepared for the ending. It was a big surprise and I love that. I would recommend some light editing, however. For example, you don't sat objects on the table. You set them on the table. There was quite a bit of author intrusion where the author described the history or geograpy of where the character was. This needed to maybe be worked into diaglog. The reader doesn't really need a description of minor characters that we will not see again. Overall,the book deserves a four star.
I really enjoyed this mystery/thriller. It was well developed and included some interesting characters. Lots of twists and turns, especially the ending.I can definitely recommend this.
