Laurence was first published by a school newspaper when he was ten, for a short story about aliens getting lost. Thirty-five years later, he attended a authonomy workshop and not long after was offered a publishing contract for three books.The New York Puzzle is his third novel.

I had higher hopes for this book as it is said to be on par to Dan Brown (which I enjoy) and James Patterson (hit or miss for me). Having not read the first two books, this book could be read as a standalone and I didn't have a problem with the story referring back to the previous books. However, I could not and did not finish the book. I got up to chapter 23 before I lost interest. I originally read some of the book then put it down for a few weeks before attempting to pick it back up but it still didn't intrigue me enough to read on. This book promised thriller, drama, and conspiracy. I'd have to say that I'd consider it more of a drama and somewhat of a conspiracy but I don't consider it a thriller. The writing did not catch me enough and it felt flat for me. There are multiple points of views and it felt choppy and a little confusing. I also didn't really care for anyone in the book, not even Isabel who I wanted to like. It is well written but it dragged on for me. Perhaps I'm too impatient of a reader but this book may not have been for me. This book might be more for those readers who like a slow build up and mystery. Maybe I'd give it another chance but for now I rather have a book catch my attention right away. 2 out of 5 rating for me! (A copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way.)

It wasn't really her husband or he is fake crying or he had a guilty look on his face. And, he took something of hers while he was at the body.
