The Fate of Katherine Carr
On the way to a family event, I took along the audio version of The Fate of Katherine Carr by Thomas H. Cook. I recently acquired a copy of his book, The Crime of Julian Wells, and have become interested in his work. In The Fate of Katherine Carr, the narrator, George Gates, is traveling on a boat and he’s sharing his story with the boat captain. George’s son was tragically kidnapped and murdered some years before. George had been a travel writer but now he writes light pieces for the local paper. Every day he grieves for his murdered child. Then a retired detective gives him a story written by Katherine Carr, a young woman who disappeared years ago. George is captivated by the story and starts to investigate on his own. I enjoyed this book because it was well written, and it had a supernatural element. The ending was clever.
