The Art of Fear by Pamela Crane is a 2017 publication of about 306 pages, but the reader will not feel there are this many pages. This is a very fast-paced novel, capturing and holding interest for at least 75% of the novel. It then slows a bit as Crane ties up some loose ends and comes to an ending which is OK, logical, and with a surprise but I did not feel the ending lived up to the promise of earlier parts of the novel. This is worth reading for the first 75% alone; it is very entertaining as it presents lots of tricks and distractions which will entertain the reader’s mind even after taking a break in the reading. Read it all at once; you will be distracted if you don’t.
