Ken Scott¿s book is well worth the read. Like many of you, I have a stack of books on my nightstand and sometimes I read two or three simultaneously, choosing whichever one matches my mood. Occasionally, I¿ll start a book like that demands attention and won¿t allow time for the others. A Million Would Be Nice is one of those books. I couldn¿t divert from it until I was finished. It was much better than others I¿ve read in this genre of crime thriller/suspense. Scott writes with intensity, and he is able to shift gears and thrust us into the warped thoughts and motives of various characters. While the main character is not traditionally sympathetic, there is no doubt about the origins of his sexually charged, murderous arrogance and cold-heartedness. What makes this book curiously different is that despite a few academic literary flaws, the intense writing style carries the story and lifts it above the others. Therefore, I can easily recommend A Million Would Be Nice. I didn¿t want to stop reading, which is the best measure for any fiction, regardless of genre. To offer a disclaimer, I feel compelled to inform you that I bought 'A Million Would Be Nice' because it is published by Libros International, the same company that will publish 'or has published' my own novel 'Where the River Splits.' Often, as with any reviews, I don¿t necessarily agree with nor understand the high ratings and sometimes befuddling raves. However, I truly enjoyed this book and can without hesitation recommend it.
