Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite Howard Pollack has conceptualized and developed a brilliant suspense novel in Everywhere That Tommy Goes. The author introduces us to Tommy, a seemingly ordinary fellow who suffers from intense migraine headaches. Tommy gets into a fight, only to be rescued by his new friend Troyer. But when a bartender turns up murdered, Tommy becomes the prime suspect. Gradually, he begins to question the actions and motivations of the engaging Troyer Savage. The man has an Aussie accent and can charm the skin off a snake and yet, Tommy is strangely attracted to the man. And then, another murder takes place and Tommy wakes up to find himself covered in blood and on the run. As the police begin to build a strong case against Tommy, Troyer disappears and Tommy begins to question his own sanity. He is unable to separate the nightmares of his own reality from the possibilities of an experimental drug which tend to skew and blur the lines of fantasy and reality. This is a beautiful psychological mystery in which reality and paranoia produce an increasingly more intense plot. Tommy's character is wonderful in that the reader will sympathize with the man and be suspicious of him at the same time. The plot is developed with intrigue and precision and author Pollock comes off like a skilled story surgeon in command of the scalpel. Even when you get the clues, you're not sure what they really mean. Everywhere That Tommy Goes will keep you guessing until the very end. And then, you will have to guess again.
Every once in a while I discover a crime thriller with a plotline so original that it renews my faith in the genre. This book took me on an unexpected journey that grabbed ahold of me and entertained from page one all the way to the very end. I'm usually pretty good at figuring out what is going on by the time I get half way through a story, and I absolutely believed that I knew where this book was going too, but I was wrong, and the ending floored me. The reveal is so well done I actually found myself skimming the pages again trying to spot some of the clues I missed the first time around. If you consider yourself a crime sleuth, and dare to challenge your deductive skills, then this book is a must read.
