Well-Known To Whom She Wonders
It wasn't so much the normal, right thing (you overestimate my moral standards). It was do the self-protective little bit immoral thing. But the author came close enough to what I would have done that my slightly immoral soul was satisfied.Thanks. It's on my list. I found a page with all her books and that's the only one that says "thriller". The others are "general fiction". Lee Child gave it a good review.
I guess if characters in books did the normal, right thing all the time it would get pretty boring, huh? I'm always thinking "why didn't you just............." and the ever popular "don't go there alone", but they do.
I've read the first two. #3 is "on the list".
