this novel gives us direct insight to the mind and workings of this man

A Cold Piece of Work is the journey of Solomon Singletary and those associated with him. It depicts the paths and roads that they all traveled with him and his actions. As we go on this journey, many emotions are invoked, experienced and shown….yes at times I actually had reactions to him and they varied in their intensity.

 Curtis Bunn penned a novel that gave us direct insight to the mind and workings of this man thus how he thought, what he thought and the reasons why. The aforementioned directed the paths he chose. Essentially Solomon has no faith, belief or trust in women. He deals with them basically for companionship and sex. The opinions and thoughts he has were formed from the perils in his life and as an adult; they became the foundation of his beliefs that he is very proud of and live by.

 As we travel these roads and paths that are Solomon, we grow to understand his reasoning even if we don’t agree with him. Things are brought to light that challenge his stance and changes the direction of his life. This is an enlighten journey, that I commend for its directness. This is a novel that I found myself totally engrossed in, if for no other reason than to find out what happens next. This was very good and intense (at times) reading.

I give this novel 4.5 stars, November 19, 2012
