Search. What would you do if your father was suspected of murder and disappeared? The protagonist of Flynn Berry’s novel titled, A Double Life, does what most of us would do: look for him. Claire was a child when her father disappeared, and three decades later, while working in London as a doctor, she becomes focused on tracking him down. Berry’s prose meanders through an irregular plot but uses every scene to help readers understand Claire. Toward the end of the novel, most readers will anticipate what Claire will do next. Fans of finely written literary fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
