|A Case of Wild
by Yvonne Jerrold
From a review on Bookloons.com by Mary Ann Smyth:
The back story to A Case of Wild Justice?...is beautifully wrought. The characters involved are very carefully analyzed and become real before your reading eyes: Hannah, her sister Jessie, her neighbour Declan who has a crush on her granddaughter, Hannah's two children Peter and Caroline, and her grandchildren Veronica, Helen and the abusive Billy. And let's not forget Rupert, Jessie's ex-husband whom Hannah has good reason to avoid.
This book is basically a narrative - little dialogue. And it works! It works very well. Getting to know the characters so intimately is a treasure. Their thoughts and reflections bound off the pages. In so doing, these musings also act to create some thought on the readers' part as to their own lives and how they could put some of the advice to good use.
The build-up to the finale of this carefully plotted story is absorbingly brilliant. This book is a work of art and will easily earn the praise it shall undoubtedly receive.
