Review: 29 Argyle Drive by David Turri

I started out knowing little about the city of Christchurch and its environs (other than the engrossing mysteries of Paul Cleve) so this special novel was quite an education for me, in geography, culture, law, education of foreign students, and social issues from the 1960's on. More than that, author David Turri capably explores his characters, both the living and the dead, the "normal" and the bizarre.

Of course, I chose the book because of its hauntings--and there are a surfeit of those. Not just at the lovely home on Argyle Drive, but at other locations where brutality had occurred. The novel is perhaps not pleasant reading, but very engrossing and a genuinely satisfying read.
