The Singer's Gun (manuscript)The Singer’s Gun by Emily St. John Mandel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I adore this author. After reading Last Night in Montreal. She was on my to-read list. Singer’s Gun did not disappoint.

This book really sucks you in. It follows the story of 2 people, a man and a woman, that both have found their life on a different path than planned, or possibly wanted.

One with a job that he never really wanted but was found doing anyway. A job that is illegal and has its consequences. This leads to a series of life decisions and events that he controls and doesn’t.

His life is then intertwined with a woman, who worked hard to find her way to this country but is now faced with choosing who to trust, who to love, and finding her happiness.

It is hard to write this review but not give away any spoilers. So sorry for being cryptic.

The book is wonderfully written. It’s storyline is current, tragic, and intense.

This author has continued to exceed my expectations…now just to wait for her next book.
