Page turner Sep 18, 2002
A well paced story that keeps the level of suspense high throughout. One of very few books that I wanted to read cover to cover in a single sitting. I look forward to Mr. Lutterman's next literary contribution.
Recommended as a gripping, twisted, lethal saga Sep 14, 2002
A dark thriller about the unseemly, mind-control tactics of a deadly segment of human society, Brian Lutterman's Bound To Die is the story of Tori McMillan, a middle-aged widow who witnesses her best friend commit inexplicable and unspeakable murders. She follows the trail of a child who has been missing for seven years to a camp of ruthless white separatists, a cult who marks all that cross them for death. Bound To Die is recommended as a gripping, twisted, lethal saga, an one that quickly captures the reader's total attention and won't let go until the shocking climax.
Bound to Succeed Sep 11, 2002
Brian Lutterman's mystery novel "Bound To Die" is a great debut from an author we'll hear from again. There is no mystery in why it was chosen as the 3rd annual "Mystery Novel Award" winner by Salvo Press, which touts itself as the "microbrew of the industry." Books like Bound To Die will quickly elevate Salvo to Samuel Adams status.
Tori McMillan is a likable and capable protagonist. Recently widowed and currently unemployed, Tori witnesses her best friend Cindy (presumably still despondent over the disappearance of her son seven years earlier), wade into a crowded outdoor gathering and shoot four people dead. Cindy then disappears in an apparent bridge-jump suicide. Ironically, the local detective and FBI agent assigned to investigate also worked the case of Cindy's missing son. No answers are forthcoming, though. It appears to be an open-and-shut, woman-snaps-and-commits-random-multiple-murder-suicide case. But Tori feels differently. She suspects that the four victims were somehow linked and chosen specifically, that it might have to do with the missing boy, and that Cindy might not really be dead. Her curiosity uncovers some important clues--and drags her unwittingly into the crosshairs of a bizarre group of cultish conspirators called The Bound, which has insinuated itself into the very fabric of America, including the White House. But who are these people? What are their goals? And what do they have to do with Cindy and her missing son? Tori is bound and determined to unravel this mystery ... and she'd better do it before they kill her.
Lutterman's prose flows with an ease that's uncommon in first novels. There's none of the pretentious, trying-too-hard, look-at-me-I'm-a-writer narrative that plagues so many otherwise good stories. The unpredictable plot is thick with just enough twists and surprises to satisfy without numbing the mind. Pay attention, Hollywood, this might make a good movie. --Christopher Bonn Jonnes, author of Wake Up Dead.
Quite a fascinating suspense novel Aug 24, 2002
This was a very well-written novel from this new author and I found the story quite compelling. In fact, it is a novel with several threads woven together - and it is quite skillfully done. Sometimes suspense novels can become quite complex and difficult to follow, but I thought this was beautifully put together. I highly recommend this book - lots of human emotions, fast-paced and quite a surprise ending.
