What Comes Around

by Adair Sanders

What Comes AroundIn the interest of full disclosure, I need to say that I went to school with the author and I really wanted to like this book as much as I did her two previous books: As Sick as Our Secrets, the first in the Allison Parker Mystery Series and Biologically Bankrupt…Sins of the Father, a sad, autobiographical work.  What Comes Around is the second in her mystery series.  I think Sanders is a good writer: in terms of plot, characters, etc, I can easily award this book four stars (out of five).  The first chapter is particularly well written and drew me into the rest of the tale.

My reticence in wholeheartedly recommending What Comes Around  centers on its graphic descriptions of sexual violence. Everyone has a personal tolerance level for various aspects of fiction–horror, violence, even romance. I personally find this level of detail disturbing, but another reader may see its role in What Comes Around as essential to character and plot development.

Kudos to Adair Sanders who completed a successful law career and has jumped into a second successful career as a writer. I look forward to reading more of the Allison Parker Mystery Series.
