Overview

One of the great literary mysteries of the twentieth century concerns J. D. Salinger. In the mid-1960s, the revered creator of The Catcher in the Rye suddenly stopped publishing and withdrew from public life. In David Morrell’s haunting “The Architecture of Snow,” an author similar to Salinger submits a manuscript after a four-decade absence. Why has he abruptly resurfaced? What caused his long-ago disappearance? When editor Tom Neal embarks on a search to a remote New England town, he uncovers the disturbing truth behind a tragic mystery that changes his life in unimaginable ways.

David Morrell is the critically acclaimed author of First Blood, The Brotherhood of the Rose, and many other bestselling novels. An Edgar, Anthony, and Macavity nominee, he is a recipient of three Bram Stoker awards from the Horror Writers Association as well as the Thriller Master Award from the International Thriller Writers organization. His writing book, The Successful Novelist, discusses what he has learned in his four decades as an author.

“Morrell, an absolute master, plays by his own rules and leaves you dazzled.”

—Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author of 77 Shadow Street

“David Morrell is, to me, the finest thriller writer living today, bar none.”

—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

“Everything [David Morrell] writes has a you-are-there quality and that, coupled with his ability to propel characters through a scene, makes reading him like attending a private screening.”

—Washington Post

Pretty good for a short story. Some of his recent novels haven't been as good.

At first I admit I wondered if this was going to be a shallow story, just hinting and leaving the reader wondering. But it proved to be more than tgat. It is a tight read with just enough details to keep the reader interested and just questions to keep the reader entralled until its end. I whole heartedly recommend this read to anyone short on time wyho loves good writing that leaves you wanting more. It does not disappoint, rather it entertains and intrigues.

This isn’t a serial killer story. This isn’t a global conspiracy story. This is another amazing story by David Morrell.
