My review of Bernard Beckett’s impressive first book, Genesis, is in the April 1 issue of Booklist. Cleaning off my desk, I saw a scribble that reminded me of a comment that I couldn’t quite fit into the review. I predicted the ending about halfway through the book (which isn’t to say it’s predictable, necessarily, but that book reviewers get pretty sharp about that kind of thing)–and it blew my mind anyway. Knowing that it was coming didn’t do anything to diminish its power. Now that’s a good ending!
